Discovering Sacred Texts: Buddhism



A very nice short general presentation. Not any great depth but a nice overview. :slight_smile:


Lovely to see all the manuscripts. Thanks.


Thank you.

The chanting at the beginning is powerful, focusing and immersive…
…and it contrasts jarringly with the background music, which invites one to relaxed acceptance. I am guessing that the background music may have been an editorial addition? It sounds a bit odd in context. :upside_down_face:

It was quite informative to see old scriptures. I can’t understand them but can readily see the care and mindfulness of their creation and preservation.

This video also clarified my long-standing question about the “minor rules”. Apparently there are thousands of those (e.g. “close the door while napping”). :open_mouth:
