Single DVD

Two and a half millennia ago, a new religion was born in India, generated from the ideas of the Buddha, a mysterious Indian sage who gained enlightenment while he sat under a large, shapely fig tree. The Buddha never claimed to be God or his emissary on earth, only that he was a human being who had found a kind of serenity that others could find, too. This documentary tells the story of his life, a journey especially relevant in our own times.

It does not matter where the Buddha was born, what matter is his messages of this great teaching. And also I think Pbs/Author was right on saying that the Buddha was born in the 'Foot-hills of the Himalayas.' It did not mentioned Nepal or India. Morevoer, we are talking about the time 2600 years ago when there was 16 princely state, not like a modern day boundary. Even the name Nepal and India was not there at the time. Therefore, it is very right to say in 'The foothills of the Himalayas'.
The message was great for all. Everybody benefits from it. Wheather one is Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, Sikh or Non-Believer in anything.
Thank you so much for the Director, Pbs and all the Crews.

I watched this great documentary about the Siddhartha life titled "The Buddha". This movie wasn't terrible, however it wasn't fit for me. The pictures and real paintings they showed really helped narrate the story of the Buddha's life and the explanation of the people who were being interviewed too. As well the music fit perfectly and really set the mood. I really think the overall production of the movie was fantastic. The disadvantages were the story went into so too much depth for me, because I just needed a basic understanding. I recommend this movie to people who really want to have a deep understanding and a thorough history of his life.
