This is why I’m not on fb

Annas Art - FärgaregårdsAnna

In the early 1980’s I saw a movie on tv that I never forgot. It was certainly not an “Oscar-film” in any way. That is not why I remember the movie.

It was the content, the message, the lesson about human behavior that got stucked in my head.

This memory of the film has helped me through the years to recognize bad structures, that can go very wrong when the wrong leaders pull the strings.

I re-saw (is that a word?) the film couple of years ago and it strucked me how up to date the film message is. I didn’t regret at all not to participating in any kind of closed social media that requires registration to enter.

Today’s post is a small journey back in time.

Let’s start with the famous Silk Route- an extensive network of roads that connected areas from China, in the east and the Mediterranean, in the west. This route was central not only to trade, but was also the prime source of cultural and religious interactions. These interactions with the regions of Cental Asia, Afghanistan, China and India, contributed greatly to building the rich cultural heritage of Gilgit, which was a major stop on this road. Along with other religions, the Silk Route introduced Buddhism to this region. Innumerable petroglyphs of images of Buddha, stupas and other Buddhist symbols along with inscriptions in 10 ancient languages, including Kharoshti, are found scattered around the region- reminiscent of the world’s first large scale missionary movement. This transmission of Buddhism started in the 1st century and continued till 7th.
