The Buddha Now

Siddhartha, who came to be known as the Buddha, would roam around near a railway station and watch the trains come and go. As a young man he loved a young woman but followed the path of wisdom through the forest to seek counsel from his teacher. He needed to resolve the question in his own mind about love and wisdom.

Writer Statement

My screenplay The Buddha Now is intended to bring the Buddha to life in these modern times. Nothing but legendary material is known about him except perhaps that he left his castle and became a wandering ascetic. He finally seems to have gathered a following.
