Can you have a more ringing endorsement than that!?

See the film, if you haven't yet.

It'd be interesting to separate them into two groups; a 'Samatha' group and a 'Vipassana' group and see if there's really much difference in their 'results.'

The film can be watched (legally) here for free:



There are a few commercials, but not too bad.

thank you for this wonderful link.. I just had to watch it tonight. I am proud to call the persons in this video my dhamma brothers and it heartens me to see the teachings of the Buddha in a place where negativity, fear, anger, and hatred breed.

I am a fiscal conservative and i'm not very sure about how our tax dollars are spent in prisons(I also deal with people in the system on a regular basis as a child protective services worker), but this simple program is something I wouldn't mind my tax dollars going to. This needs to be in facilities across the country.

Thanks for the update and the link Nibbida.

:anjali:
All the world is on fire, All the world is burning, All the world is ablaze, All the world is quaking. That which does not quake or blaze, That to which worldlings do not resort, Where there is no place for Mara:That is where my mind delights. (SN 5.7)

By degrees, little by little,
from moment to moment,
the wise purify themselves,
as a smith purifies silver.
—Dhammapada 239
