A groundbreaking exploration of the ''science of enlightenment,'' told through the lens of the journey of Siddhartha (better known as Buddha), by Guardian science editor James Kingsland.
The film follows the story of the Buddha's life and discusses the history and teachings of Buddhism. Two and a half millennia ago, a new religion was born in northern India, generated from the ideas of a single man, the Buddha, a mysterious Indian sage who famously gained enlightenment while he sat under a large, shapely fig tree. The Buddha never claimed to be God or his emissary on earth. He said only that he was a human being who, in a world of unavoidable pain and suffering, had found a kind of serenity that others could find, too. This documentary by award-winning filmmaker David Grubin tells the story of his life, a journey especially relevant in our own bewildering times of violent change and spiritual confusion. Richard Gere narrates.
