The Buddha in his Own Words, a special benefit performance for CIMC
The life of the Buddha in his own words - the evolution of his thought, his triumphs, and the rarely portrayed tragedy at the end of his life.
The man we know as the Buddha lived in Northern India around 500BCE and introduced the teaching known as Buddhism. Approximately 300 years after his death, an extensive oral history of the movement was written down, carried and copied throughout Asia, and this canon became the taproot of the entire Buddhist tradition. Framed in a most unusual and personal context, this original one-man play brings to the stage these authentic texts to enact the extraordinary life of the man, start to finish.
The Buddha considered his own life a model for all our spiritual struggles saying, "He who knows me, knows the Dharma." It's no dry tale -- The Buddha's life stands among the great archetypal adventure stories.
