Buddha and Lexus vs. Nike

"If you were ever curious about Buddha’s life and his teachings, I would like to share this 2010 PBS documentary film THE BUDDHA. There are many films on Buddha, but I like this one for its simplicity in explaining Buddha's teachings.

“Over the years, I have watched it many times and it has inspired me with new insights every time. It runs for 2 hours and 40 minutes. Please watch it in quietude.”

-- Kanu Mehta who cares for his wife, Sumi
