 Description: Narrated by Richard Gere, The Buddha, a two hour documentary by Emmy Award-winner David Grubin, tells the story of the Indian sage who attained enlightenment as he sat beneath a fig tree two and a half millennia ago. The Buddha never claimed to be God or God's emissary on earth. He was a human being who, in a world of unavoidable pain and suffering, found a serenity that he taught others to find also. With original animation woven throughout, The Buddha draws upon paintings and sculptures as well as scenes in India today that echo the Buddha's world of long ago. The testimony of contemporary Buddhists, including Pultizer Prize-winning poet WS Merwin and his Holiness the Dalai Lama, provide insight into the ancient narrative.
