The Little Buddha
There is a Litte Buddha within all of us. Even now, two thousand five hundred years later, all the Buddha’s from all times are everywhere. Within and without us. Smiling.
The book that inspired the film. Giovanni Mastrangelo’s interpretation of the Sanskrit text invokes the call of Buddha, like a musical theme; it echoes the repentant words of Brahmin-speaking goats, and the Spirits of bearded trees; tells this philosophical Buddhist parable almost like a child’s fairy tale: the first, small, boundless Buddhist initiation.
