The link ^ opens a page on the PBS with a "karma" game (okay, it's just Mah-Jong).

Did anybody else watch the show on PBS last night? I thought it was incredibly interesting!

It was very informative and interesting for me, as well.

Very good show. I found the point made about the Buddah realizing that he had to enjoy whats going on now and experiencing now and not live for the afterlife. Very cool.

This sounds like an interesting show, was it a drama, documentary or both?

It is an excellent documentary of the Buddha's story brought to life with interviews and animation. Very good!

Haven't been able to check out the PBS show yet. If you have any interest in Dalai Lama and his life might want to check out the movie Kundun. Its really great to watch when your on the edge of not being able to stay awake.

The Dalai Lama is used effectively in this as well.

Yes, it was a very good show. I'm still living in Zen after seeing Krishna Das perform last night. It was so cool. If you have any interest in Buddhism, meditation, chanting, relaxation, or just good eastern music, I'd highly recommend grabbing one of his CDs. His gift is making Sanskrit, eastern and Buddhist music, and chanting pleasing to the western ear. One song on his latest CD weaves a chant in Sanskrit into the Yarbirds For Your Love.
