Tibetan Buddhist nun Thubten Chodron applies stories of the Buddha’s life to modern Western life, bringing humor and warmth to profound ancient Buddhist teachings. “People often ask me why I became a nun—don’t people stare at you sometimes when you walk down the street? And I usually respond to that by saying that as soon as you smile at somebody, they realize that you are a human being like they are, and they open their heart a little bit, but I don’t go around the city dressed like everybody else because I think in some way, not only are the robes some kind of protection for me, but also the function of religious people is to pose this question to society: ‘What we are doing, and why we are doing it.’ ” 1991. 80 minutes.
