Arlington, Va. - April 16, 2012 - PBS Distribution today announced it is releasing Seven Wonders Of The Buddhist World on DVD and Blu-ray. Join historian Bettany Hughes as she explores the different beliefs and practices that form the core of the Buddhist philosophy. She investigates how Buddhism started and where it traveled to, through visits to seven of the most spectacular monuments built by Buddhists across the globe. Seven Wonders Of The Buddhist World will be available on DVD and Blu-ray May 15, 2012. The running time of the program is 74 minutes. The SRP for the DVD is $24.99 and the SRP for the Blu-ray is $29.99.
Bettany Hughes' journey begins at the Mahabodhi Temple in India, where Buddhism was born. Here Hughes examines the foundations of the belief system - the three jewels. At Nepal's Boudhanath Stupa, she looks deeper into the concept of dharma, the teachings of Buddha, and at the Temple of the Tooth in Sri Lanka, Bettany explores karma, the idea that our intentional acts will be mirrored in the future. At Wat Pho Temple in Thailand, Hughes explores samsara, the endless cycle of birth and death that Buddhists seek to end by achieving enlightenment, before traveling to Angkor Wat in Cambodia to learn more about the practice of meditation. In Hong Kong, Hughes visits the Giant Buddha and looks more closely at Zen, before arriving at the final wonder, the Hsi Lai Temple in Los Angeles, to discover more about the ultimate goal for all Buddhists - nirvana.
