Early Buddhist Manuscript Project
We are making a 15 minute documentary on the Early Buddhist Manuscript Project at the University of Washington. The project is working on the earliest extant Buddhist manuscripts which are dated around 100BC. The documentary will interview the professors in this project, and also interview several representative Buddhists in Seattle who are from different Buddhist traditions around the world. We hope that this documentary will relate the academic work of the scholars to the living Buddhist traditions, to show its significance beyond academia.
