Buddha

Greetings,
I wanted to share what for me was very inspirational and entertaining to watch recently.
It is a series that is currently on our Netflix called "Buddha".
There are a few different ones but this one is the one that is 55 episodes long, each of which are 45 minutes in length.
It was produced in 2013 and stars Himanshu Soni.
It takes you from before his birth to his death.
I learned so much more from this series than anything I've ever read about Buddhism before.
I found that answers to those things I never really got like renunciation and escetic life came to me thru the inspiration this series imparted in me.
It really felt like I was watching my life in many of the things he went thru. It also felt like he was there with me the whole time.
Obviously I loved it and I felt sharing such an extensive source of knowledge,wisdom and entertainment was a great thing to do for those who might also appreciate what it brings.
Enjoy and Have a great day!

No interest. Fine if you watch what catches your interest. But what catches your interest is of no concern for me. Let me know when your death catches your interest.

Yes it goes without saying that if you have no interest in watching and learning from this series then it will not be of any value. I feel it also depends on where you are as to what you get out of anything. Still for those who are interested, I can only say that it was beyond awesome.
I see and appreciate you taking the time to reply to my post. It comes across as kindness on your part to me.
In regards to my death, I probably won't need to come to you because if that thought arises, I will take that opportunity to not identify with it and watch it for what it is.
Blessings

I'm using Netflix USA. I found that I can't find it streaming as of lately but I can find it at home. Maybe that is because it is listed as being on "my list".
I would try calling them. I'll try to see if it's anywhere else to be viewed.

Edit: it looks like only episode 1 is subtitled in English so you might to look into that first.

Thanks for the information. I found it on Netflix and I'm in Australia.

I've only watched the first two episodes but I thought they were great. (He's only a baby and Queen Maya has just died).

Hi Shaunc,
I'm really glad to hear that and I look forward to hearing if and how it inspires you as it did me.
Blessings

It's going to take a while for me to get back to you. My family and me are going on a holiday tomorrow. 5 days in Hong Kong and then 4 weeks in the beautiful Philippine islands. While in Hong Kong we plan to visit the big buddha statue and the nearby monastery. It's supposed to be the biggest buddha statue in the world.
