    Thanks not a bad flick. Actually pretty good considering it was only forty-nine minutes long.

    I especially liked what the people being interviewed had to say.

    Pretty good film. It presented the most allegorical storyline I have seen yet, for the Buddha’s journey towards enlightenment.

    I think we can all assume that the Buddha told his story in this way as a teaching parable. Of course when put into the cultural and historical perspective of the time this all makes perfect sense.

    I liked what the Dalai Lama had to say about Buddhism being is the science of the mind. Or the Abbot at Bohd Gaya’s two word description of Buddhism, “practice mindfulness”

    Many of the other commentators had a lot of great insight to share. All and All, very worth the forty-nine minutes spent watching it.

    I should practice more mindfulness in typing! Perhaps, I would be posting less typos.

    Wonderful film review, Gregor — many thanks.

    As for typos — no problem! These are just comments, and we all find ourselves racing through our responses from time to time. It gives our words character.
