Dragnet episode

Postby kirtu » Tue Feb 16, 2010 6:44 pm

Curiously there is a Dragnet episode during which a young man is brought in chanting OM MANI PEDME HUNG, identified the mantra as a prayer and talked briefly about Tibetan Buddhism. However the young man was on drugs.

Still it's stunning to encounter something like this.

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."

Ran into some variation of the mantra in an epiode of "Lois and clark: The New Adventures of Superman" once. Strange where it pops up.

There was a recent episode (2009) of CSI: New York prominently featuring the Tibetan Book of the Dead; I'm sure some of you might have seen it.
