The Buddha

The Buddha

Tuesday, August 26 at 8 p.m.

Two-and-a-half millennia ago, a new religion was born in northern India, generated from the ideas of a single man, the Buddha, a mysterious Indian sage who famously gained enlightenment while he sat under a large, shapely fig tree.  The Buddha never claimed to be God or his emissary on earth.  He said only that he was a human being who, in a world of unavoidable pain and suffering, had found a kind of serenity that other could find too.
