INNERVIEWS: Robert Thurman (2000)
What is a Buddhist? When we think of Buddhism we think of peace, reservation, and patience. However as Robert Thurman, perhaps the most well respected religious scholar today, says, a Buddhist is whatever a Buddhist wants to be. Being one with your self, community and world is of high importance. Explore what it means to be a Buddhist as Robert explains the three jewels, talks about Nirvana, how Buddhist teachings coexist with other religious teachings, and touches on what it means to be in the now.
