Vesak and a documentary

Today is Vesak – the day that celebrates the birth, enlightenment and death of Buddha.

Earlier this week, as I was searching for Vesak-related video clips, I came across a moving documentary on the life of Buddha. Going through a particularly difficult phase in my life, this documentary helped me take a step outside of my immediate concerns and reflect on life.

I felt like sharing this documentary (David Grubin’s The Buddha) as it is a very inspiring story.

May this special day encourage reflection, meditation and increased self-awareness!
