Open Source Dharma is a newly proposed open standard & network, whose aim is to encourage the flourishing of a transparent, collaborative, creative, & evolutionary ecosystem of dharma. The Open Source Dharma protocol serves as a radical alternative to Proprietary Dharma by making it easier for new forms of dharma to emerge. We do this by creating and maintaining an open standard that incentivizes permission-less innovation, cross-lineage collaboration, and transparent organization. Think of it as An Internet of Dharma.
The Open Source Dharma standard has 3 ranks, each demonstrating greater openness & transparency in the project than the previous. Any dharma teacher or community is welcome to join the Open Source Dharma movement by implementing this protocol in their communities of practice.
