As long as one does not become attached to the products of modernisation, but uses them mindfully and without causing harm to other living beings, Buddhism has little problem with technology. Indeed it has benefited from developments in communication and transport by facilitating the spread of knowledge about its philosophies and practices.
There are many Buddhist sites on the internet and the ability of Buddhist teachers to travel easily across the world as well as communicating on line and through various forms of media has meant that the various schools and orders have acquired students from all over the world, not just in traditionally Buddhist countries. Books, TV programs and films have disseminated Buddhist teachings to an ever-widening audience. International attention on Tibet is continually being refocused through the media, in films as well as worldwide recognition of the Dalai Lama.
Buddhism has few ethical problems with developments in medical technology, as long as no being suffers unnecessarily, but is quite opposed to weapons manufacture and related industries.
