We have seen many documentaries and movies about the Buddha, but this Buddha series (55 episodes total, 45 minutes per episode) from India by far is the best, with much details, insights and teachings. The series is produced by Dr. B.K. Modi, an Indian businessman, who met with our Teacher, Thay, Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, in 2006 to express his wish to do a movie of the Buddha based on the book OLD PATH WHITE CLOUDS written by our Teacher. This is perhaps the fruit of that meeting.
We kindly invite you to watch this series with peace, joy and moderation. To help us watering the positive seeds inside and allow the teachings in the movie penetrate deeply into our hearts, we invite you to watch no more than seven episodes per week. It is like when we have a delicious plate of food, we want to enjoy it slowly so that our happiness can last longer :). It is highly encouraged and recommended to read OLD PATH WHITE CLOUDS or listen to the audiobook before or while watching this movie.
The Sisters at Magnolia Grove Monastery are watching this movie together during lazy time. We believe that watching this together with your family, the sangha, the community that lives in harmony and awareness, the Buddha would be very happy 🙂.
May your day be filled with many moments of happiness.
