Docu. series about early Buddhism by Bhikkhu Anandajoti

Postby perkele » Tue Sep 04, 2012 4:26 pm

Don't know if this is more fitting here or in the Open Dhamma. May the mods move it as they please. Thanks.

A nice documentary series I stumbled across recently. Bhante Anandajoti tells about the history of early Buddhism in a nice storytelling way from the Buddha's enlightenment up until 100 AD or something, with political maps, historical and scriptural anecdotes all nicely put together.
The series consits of four parts:

The Early Life of the Buddha

The Last Year of the Buddha's Life
phpBB [video]


Asoka and the Missions
phpBB [video]


The Spread of Buddhist civilization through Asia
phpBB [video]


Enjoy. :ugeek:

Roughly five hours of video here;

:popcorn:

I'm quite interested to see how the available material is handled.
    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting oneself one protects others? By the pursuit, development, and cultivation of the four establishments of mindfulness. It is in such a way that by protecting oneself one protects others.

    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting others one protects oneself? By patience, harmlessness, goodwill, and sympathy. It is in such a way that by protecting others one protects oneself.
- Sedaka Sutta [SN 47.19]
