Looking for Video resources for Sunday School

Post by pilgrim » Mon Dec 07, 2009 8:44 am

I'm looking for video documentaries that I can show my sunday school teens. I have Mindful Way, The Buddha Comes to Sussex and a couple others. Are there any recommendations? Secular videos like The Story of Stuff would also be helpful.

I have a few others posted on my blog site, they are all from youtube bun no Idea of the links to them there
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

There is a really good documentary about the life of the Buddha on youtube (just search for 'the life of the buddha') I think it is a decent educational documentary, not strictly Theravadin though.

"For a disciple who has conviction in the Teacher's message & lives to penetrate it, what accords with the Dhamma is this:
'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." - MN. 70 Kitagiri Sutta
