PBS’s Buddha biopic premieres tonight, a day before the Buddha’s birthday in Japan (or one of them anyway.) You can watch the trailer here. David Grubin directs the documentary and Richard Gere narrates. The two-hour show will cover the Buddha’s life and some fundamental points of his teachings.
On the PBS site you can buy a DVD of the show, and play mahjong.
