My personal Top 10 Favourite Buddhist movie clips from You Tube

For people who are not born Buddhists it may be difficult to fully understand the teachings and philosophy of Buddhism. Here in the West we belong and seek attachment to wealth and the cult of individual personality and these form dominant themes and can be seen to be in opposition to the teachings of the Buddha.So that's where the popular medium of motion pictures and in particular the widescreen global appeal of Hollywood can assist in creating a deeper understanding. These popular movies can feature,pain, loss, desire and attachment and with these common themes the viewer can relate directly to the major issues and mores of modern contemporary Buddhism.
