Buddhism and Film Mini-course

The uber-inimitable (need a bigger adjective this time) Rev. Danny Fisher has done it again. In my last post I reported on his Religion and Film mini-course.

Now he’s come up with a new mini-course on Twitter about Buddhism and Film #buddhismfilmminicourse 

Read the material provided, watch the vid clip and apply what you read to it…that’s what I’m doing at least.

  1. Two number sevens. Sheesh. Sounds like an order at my local take-out place. That’s what I get for doing this one at several intervals throughout the day instead of one sitting.

    Thank you so, so much for putting this all together here, Marnie–you’re the best.

  3. Oh, wait…you know what the problem is there. “Morality” was cut. I re-did it as “Ethical Conduct.” They’re the same entry, with “Ethical Conduct” having new title/readings. My bad!
