Buddhist Geeks 217: The Aesthetic of Meditation is Broken (with Rohan Gunatillake)

This is an interesting and somewhat different Buddhist conversation than one usually hears - another great reason to tune into the Buddhist Geeks.

Rohan Gunatillake is Vince's guest this week - he blogs at and is working on a new project called Buddhify.

Buddhist Geeks 217: The Aesthetic of Meditation is Broken

BG 217: The Aesthetic of Meditation is Broken

16. May, 2011 by Rohan Gunatillake


Episode Description:

We’re joined again by a regular contributor of Buddhist Geeks and blogger at, Rohan Gunatillake. Rohan joins us to explore three areas in which the aesthetic of meditation could be improved. Specifcally these areas are: 1) language, 2) look & feel, & 3) delivery models. We then explore various ideas on how to meet these design challenges with design-specific solutions. Rohan suggests that taking a co-design approach to these challenges, including the users more fully into the design process, is a great first step. In addition he shares details on a project that he’s currently working on, a mobile application called Buddhify, which is a specific example of improving the aesthetic of meditation through technological and design innovations.
