Richard Gere Narrating the Fascinating Story of "Buddha" (April, 2010 Release) DVD
BuzzFlash.com's Review (excerpt)

"Two and a half millennia ago, a new religion was born in northern India, generated from the ideas of a single man, the Buddha, a mysterious Indian sage who famously gained enlightenment while he sat under a large, shapely fig tree. The Buddha never claimed to be God or his emissary on earth. He said only that he was a human being who, in a world of unavoidable pain and suffering, had found a kind of serenity that others could find, too. This documentary by award-winning filmmaker David Grubin tells the story of his life, a journey especially relevant in our own bewildering times of violent change and spiritual confusion. Richard Gere narrates."

"This is one of the very best historical Buddha documentary I've seen in a long, long time. Richard Gere, our great spokesman for his most blessed HHDL and Buddhism narrates this tale with utmost respect and care, along with a great cast of highly revered experts including Robert Thurman, other monks, nuns, poets, writers, and of course, none other than his His Holiness Dalai Lama (HHDL). The docu covers much grounds, including the Buddha's childhood stage, mostly historical and commonly accepted findings of his youth, to his last dying days, covering much intimate details of his search for reaching and attaining enlightenment, hence the Buddha, meaning the Enlightened One. Thanks to the wonderful David Grubin and a great cast and Richard Gere for bringing this to fruition and the most blessed teaching of Buddhism, not just to a Western audience, but to the world. On a separate but related note, my wish is that this video would one day be widely available and be seen in mainland China for some 1.3 billion plus Chinese to watch and learn from the great teaching of the Buddha, and not the crass, materialism of modern times, hence have a new found respect for Buddhism, for Tibet and its people."
