A short course in Buddhism. It seems to be such an open and compassionate philosophy/religion. I found myself getting lost in the detailed intricacies of all the levels and stages to achieve Buddahood. I'm not sure I understand what is meant by "emptiness" and why it is really so important to get to that empty place.

I think I would prefer to learn about Buddhism through a story or a more narrative vehicle. But this was a nice, brief window into karma and Buddhism.
