Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth. What is the truth? There is no spoon.

What is Dharma? - DharmaflixWiki

Your world and everything in it, including you, is a simulacrum, illusory like a dream, a video game, or the Matrix. It arises from that which is called by many many names, but "your awakened mind" will work as well as any.

When your awakened mind illumines itself in the full glare of its own light, and penetrates the purported solidity of the material world, there is enlightenment, and the path is walked. Speaking Dharma, hearing Dharma, does not make it clear for you, so it is said that the Dharma cannot be spoken. Also, upon realization of Dharma, all statements are immediately seen to be part of the illusory world. Can there be a true statement in a dream?

Films seem real because we suspend our disbelief in them. Likewise, we live out our lives with our disbelief suspended in the 3-D illusory world we call "Reality". This is called "ignorance". Dharmaflix has films which may, if we remain aware, help us to regain our suspicion of Reality. When this suspicion of Reality, through meditation, becomes experience of the illusoriness of Reality, there is Dharma.

Buddha - Little Buddha (Buda)

"The most quietly moving film Bertolucci has made." - The Village Voice.

From the award winning director of the Last Emperor comes this visually stunning film based on the life of the Buddha, starring Keanu Reeves, Bridget Fonda, and Chris Isaak.

In Seattle, USA, a young boy and his family discover the story of Prince Siddhartha and how he became the Buddha. Then Tibetan monks appear on the scene, searching for their leader's reincarnation - who they believe has been reborn in the young boy. Thus the life story of the Buddha is interwoven with a modern story about young tulkus.

Also featuring Sogyal Rinpoche, Dzongsar Khyentse Norbu Rinpoche, Khyongla Rato Rinpoche and Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen. Extras include: the making of Little Buddha, and interview with producer Jeremy Thomas, and theatrical trailer. Main Page - DharmaflixWiki
