Oh yeah, I am kinda looking forward to seeing it. I am also rather interested as the director behind it seems to act like such a knowitall.

"The Truth That Has Long Been Hidden" :roll:

Just reading this guys blog posts makes me uninterested in his opinions, and in the film. Which is a shame.

Yup, I completely share your opinion here.

He soudns like "white saviour" who came to reveal the truth to those "wrong" practitioners. Really it smells more like a possible instance of white "supremacy" to the extent how he basically comes to the buddhist turf and decides to tell people the real truth. Totally ignoring thousands of years of discourse on the topic and only picking his favourites.

I,for one,really don’t like the way he deals with the opposite side.Taking moral high ground and even to the extent of demonizing them.I mean ,honestly, there are a whole lot of accomplished Siddhas and masters who happened to ‘eat meat’.Would he also demonize them?But the thing is that him using all those videos of all those Buddhist teachers in his vegan ego tripping and blame game who might not at all appreciate if they found out what he did with them.
