Looking for Video resources for Sunday School

Postby pilgrim » Mon Dec 07, 2009 8:44 am

I'm looking for video documentaries that I can show my sunday school teens. I have Mindful Way, The Buddha Comes to Sussex and a couple others. Are there any recommendations? Secular videos like The Story of Stuff would also be helpful.

There is a really good documentary about the life of the Buddha on youtube (just search for 'the life of the buddha') I think it is a decent educational documentary, not strictly Theravadin though.

"And so, because this Teaching is so different from what Westerners are accustomed to, they will try to adapt the Teaching to their own framework. What they need to learn to do is not to adapt the Teaching to their own point of view but to adapt their own point of view to the Teaching. This is called saddhá, or faith, and it means giving oneself to the Teaching even if the Teaching is contrary to one’s own preconceived notions of the way things are."- Ven Bodhesako
