As a student of the Buddha's teachings, I can appreciate this thread.
He promoted many concepts, but Awareness is always at the heart of all of them. That would seem to be a good asset for an ME.
With regard to his admonitions against "discrimination", in my view he meant not to attach to preconceived or to closely-held viewpoints; and also to maintain equanimity, evenness, of temperament, thought, and behavior; not to necessarily discard one's reasoning or discernment. He in fact was always telling people to gather information, and make wise choices.
He also taught "lovingkindness", compassion, which is a good way to approach someone else's labor of love. And each other. And all living beings.
He advised to always "strive with diligence", and to exert "right effort" in one's chosen occupation. He cautioned against the use of strong intoxicants.
Pretty good advice for a professional ME, or for anyone, really.
And, as he wisely pointed out, words are merely representations of reality, and not the thing itself, so we do have to be careful about attaching to definitions of words as though they meant only one thing, or were the thing, because they obviously are not.
He was also a firm believer in cause and effect, a principle that can certainly be applied to audio.
Finally I guess, since as he pointed out, all temporal things are transitory, and all material things will pass away, maybe we should do our best, but then, don't take it too mortally seriously.
