Prajnaketu takes us into the world of the cyberloka - the online realm in which so much of our lives now take place. In this short, punchy and often funny book, Prajnaketu offers deep Buddhist insights that help us manage and flourish in the digital age.

Going beyond questions of digital diet, he shows how our perception is shaped by being online, and how we can work with awareness and mindfulness as we negotiate hyperavailability, superstimulation and what and how to broadcast on social media. He also starts a long overdue conversation between Buddhist ethics and the world of pornography.

Prajnaketu was born Timothy Holden in 1985 in Southampton, England. He began to embrace Buddhism while studying for a degree in mathematics and philosophy at the University of Oxford and was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order in 2014. He's at his most inspired when reflecting, writing, and teaching at the interface between Buddhism and twenty-first century life.
