The Free e-Nālandā Research and Practice University has been re-organized to function through the following Schools of Learning :

Buddha’s Sangha Practiced His Dhamma Free of cost, hence the Free- e-Nālandā Research and Practice University follows suit

As the Original Nālandā University did not offer any Degree, so also the Free  e-Nālandā Research and Practice University.



The teachings of Buddha are eternal, but even then Buddha did not proclaim them to be infallible. The religion of Buddha has the capacity to change according to times, a quality which no other religion can claim to have…Now what is the basis of Buddhism? If you study carefully, you will see that Buddhism is based on reason. There is an element of flexibility inherent in it, which is not found in any other religion.

Illuminating Prince’s Path That Led to Awaken-ness

Published: April 6, 2010

David Grubin, a prolific maker of television documentaries, specializes in profiles of American presidents and other prominent Westerners: Lincoln, both Roosevelts, Truman, Napoleon, Freud. For his latest PBS project, making its debut on Wednesday night, he has headed East, offering a two-hour introduction to an Asian with a large Western fan base.


The Buddha,” in keeping with its unadorned title, is a simple, straightforward introduction to the life and teachings of Siddhartha Gautama. Written and directed by Mr. Grubin, it’s broken into roughly equal parts covering the Prince Siddhartha story — decadence, despair and deprivation leading to enlightenment under a fig tree — and the subsequent history and precepts of Buddhism.

The cast of talking heads includes, on the one hand, theDalai Lama (projecting irascibility) and several other Buddhist monks, and, on the other, a larger and more prominently featured group of Western writers and scholars. Among them are the poets W. S. Merwin (compelling) and Jane Hirshfield (oddly intense) and the ubiquitous Columbia scholar and father of Uma, Robert Thurman.

The experts are often upstaged by the simple, slightly druggy animations used to tell the Siddhartha story and to illustrate concepts like the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path. Sometimes these explications, like a passage about the three poisons that cause human suffering, can run on a bit long, as if the two hours proved more difficult to fill than Mr. Grubin had foreseen.

We also get a lot of pretty footage of the Indian countryside and various Buddhist pilgrimage spots, as well as Buddhist art. Little if any of the art is identified or explained, reflecting a larger tendency not to put what we’re seeing or hearing in a specific context. And it’s never clear whether the narrator, Richard Gere, is reading Mr. Grubin’s words or excerpts from an unnamed Buddhist text.

This can lead, despite the erudition of everyone involved, to a slight “Buddhism for Dummies” feeling — it seems unlikely that anyone who has even a slight acquaintance with the Buddha and his teachings will learn much here. And those already inclined to see Buddhism as a loosey-goosey religion that attracts Western space cadets probably won’t have their minds changed by “When this is, that is,” and Ms. Hirshfield’s wide-eyed statement on the miraculousness of drinking coffee from a mug.

For the sympathetic and uninitiated, though, “The Buddha” should prove a diverting couple of hours, whether they see the man’s legacy in terms of philosophy and ethics or in terms of lifestyle, aesthetics and exotic tourism.


On PBS stations on Wednesday night (check local listings).

Animated stereoviews of old Japan

In the late 19th and early 20th century, enigmatic photographer T. Enami (1859-1929) captured a number of 3D stereoviews depicting life in Meiji-period Japan.

Animated stereoview of old Japan -- [Sumo wrestlers]

A stereoview consists of a pair of nearly identical images that appear three-dimensional when viewed through a stereoscope, because each eye sees a slightly different image. This illusion of depth can also be recreated with animated GIFs like the ones here, which were created from Flickr images posted by Okinawa Soba. Follow the links under each animation for the original stereoviews and background information.

Movies Nepal

First animation film in Nepali – Gautam Buddha


We had seen some animation in Nepali movies lately but there is not a single fully animated movie in Nepali movie history.

Tulsi Ghimire is planning to make a new record by producing a fully animated movie name Gautam Buddha. Ghimire has brought in students from Lalitkala Campus in a studio in Thapathali to start drawing the characters of the movie.

Ghimire told that the works for the movie has been going on for the last seven months and it is expected that the movie will take another six months to finish. The movie is targeted to the foreign audience and will feature the life of Gautam Buddha.

Buddha for kids: Dharmapala Buddhist Center

Send us your religion news Your Community, P.O. Box 2491, Roanoke, VA 24010 or e-mail yourcommunity@roanoke.comParents say the meditation techniques of the Buddhist tradition are helpful for their kids.

Dharma for Kids teacher Katie Clifton-Wright explains to Alex Berra, 6 (left); Bria Devinney, 4; and Brian Berra, 7, the best way to sit for meditation at the Dharmapala Buddhist Center in Roanoke County.

Katie Clifton-Wright was looking for a spiritual center for her family when she began meditating at Roanoke’s Dharmapala Buddhist Center last summer.

The Roanoke mother enjoyed the peace that the practice gave her and wanted to share it with her two children, Harrison, 5, and Tallulah, 18 months. But there were no local programs for kids.

Buddhist children’s programs aren’t as easy to find as Sunday school for Christian children, Koranic school for Muslim kids or Hebrew school for Jewish children.

So Clifton-Wright, a teacher at Community School, decided to start one herself.

Last September, she began Dharma for Kids, a program that takes place on the third Saturday of each month at the Dharmapala Buddhist Center.

“Buddhism is really fun for children,” she said. “There’s so much love and joy and giving in Buddhism, and that’s what children are about.”

The type of Buddhism practiced at the Dharmapala Buddhist Center — the New Kadampa Tradition — has several programs for children worldwide.

The center’s educational program coordinator, Sherri Spain, said the Kadampa tradition is well suited for children because it’s accessible and geared to the West, and it focuses on simple instructions such as how to be kind or patient.

“I think this is pretty unique to our tradition,” Spain said about Kadampa’s number of children’s programs.

During each session, Clifton-Wright includes a brief meditation, teaching, story and art activity.

Clifton-Wright began a recent session by leading five children through a meditation about seeing and appreciating the things you have.

Then she read “Peach and Blue,” a children’s book about an adventurous peach who teaches a big blue-bellied toad how to appreciate the beauty of his home.

She likened the tale to how Buddha teaches people to see the joy and beautiful things around them.

Then she pulled out some bright foam glasses and glitter and asked the kids to make “Buddha glasses” to help them see the world through his eyes.

Parents send their children to Clifton-Wright’s program for a variety of reasons.

Some practice Buddhism and want their children to as well. Others are looking for other options for spiritual training besides formal religion and want their children to explore life’s big, universal questions.

Others send their children because of meditation’s power to relax and calm them.

Tracie Berra described meditation’s wonderful calming effect on kids and said she’ll ask her son Brian, 7, to breathe in and out when he has a temper tantrum.

Another mother, Traci Bitrick, said the program was good to introduce Buddhist concepts to children and said meditation helped calm her hyperactive son Eli, 10.

“When kids get quiet, they can realize that all the strength they need is inside them,” Clifton-Wright said.

She also believes that Buddhism has made her a better, stronger mother, especially after she separated from her husband seven months ago.

“I just think it saved my sanity and grounded me,” Clifton-Wright said. “Thank goodness for Buddha.”

C.M. reviews conclusions of Principal Secretaries/Secretaries meeting

Lucknow: 09 September 2010

The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Ms. Mayawati has directed the officers

to ensure all necessary arrangements for record kharif production this year.

She said that seeds which needed less water should be made available under

alternative arrangement in those districts, where sowing had become affected

due to less rains. Similarly, where the crops had been damaged owing to

floods, arrangement of seeds for late crops should be made available to

farmers, after the flood water recedes, she added.

The Chief Minister gave these directives, when Cabinet Secretary Mr.

Shashank Shekhar Singh, Chief Secretary Mr. Atul Kumar Gupta and

Additional Cabinet Secretary Mr. Netram apprised the Chief Minister of the

conclusions of Principal Secretaries/ Secretaries review meeting held at Yojana

Bhawan today.

Reviewing the works of agriculture department, Ms. Mayawati said that

availability of fertilizers should be maintained during kharif season at all costs.

Referring to the smuggling of fertilizers at Nepal Border, she directed the

officers to prevent it strictly and ensure that fertilizers should not remain

available more than the demand in the bordering districts of Nepal. She said

there was a large difference between soil testing and soil health card data,

which made it clear that farmers were not getting soil testing reports timely.

She directed that soil health card should be made available to farmers after a

certain period of time after soil testing. She said though 50 per cent more

crop loans had been distributed to farmers this year in comparison to last

year, but much improvement was needed. She said that Kisan Credit Cards

should be distributed to farmers according to target fixed by organising


Reviewing the State Government

s Scheme to double the income of

farmers, the Chief Minister directed the officers to estimate that how much

the income of farmers had been increased. Necessary parameters should be

fixed for it. She directed the Principal Secretary for agriculture to visit the

villages twice in a week to monitor the progress and the implementation of

the schemes being run for farmers. Directing the officers to get the amount of

money from the Central Government according to the recommendations of

Vaidyanathan Committee to strengthen co-operative societies, she said that

facilities of necessary agriculture inputs should be made available to farmers

through these co-operative societies. She also directed that effective

arrangement should be made for paddy purchase and all necessary

arrangements should be completed timely. She said that farmers should get

remunerative prices for their produce. The harassment of farmers would not

be tolerated during paddy purchase, she warned.

The Chief Minister said that a new rehabilitation policy had been

announced by the State Government for farmers regarding land acquisition

cases. She said that farmers should get proper benefit under this policy. She

also directed that all details should be collected about the farmers being

affected by land acquisition.

Reviewing the situation of flood affected areas, the Chief Minister

directed the officers to estimate the loss due to the floods on priority basis.

Distribution of financial assistance should be made soon as per rules. Besides,

repair of damaged roads and basic facilities should be made in flood affected

areas. She directed the medical and animal husbandry departments to take

immediate action for prevention of any disease in flood affected areas. She

said that Additional Director Health would be held directly responsible for

spreading of disease in flood affected areas.

Reviewing the functioning of hospitals, the Chief Minister said that there

was a lot of scope in its improvement. Directing the officers to improve the

conditions of operations being carried out in the hospitals, she said that there

was shortage of nurses in the government hospitals, so the vacancies should

be filled at the earliest. Asking the officers to exploit all the health facilities

available in the hospitals to the maximum, she said that the people should be

provided good health facilities.

Assessing the progress of U.P. Mukhya Mantri Mahamaya Garib Arthik

Madad Yojana, Ms. Mayawati said that the time table formulated for this

ambitious scheme should be strictly adhered to. She warned that any

discrepancy in the selection of beneficiaries would not be tolerated. She said

that on the spot review of this scheme should be conducted through

government-level officers from time to time.

Discussing the shortage of teachers in Basic and Secondary schools, the

C.M. directed that the vacancies should be filled at the earliest. Considering

the problems of the students living in the flood affected areas, she directed

the Secondary Education Department to give enough time to the board

students for registration. She directed the officers to improve the quality of

basic education. Reviewing the progress of Mid-Day-Meal Scheme, she said

that its quality should not be compromised. She said that the paucity of edible

articles should not occur under this scheme in any part of the state. She

directed the officers to review the stock in timely manner at all costs.

Reviewing the progress of the Rural Development Department and

MNREGA, Ms. Mayawati said that the beneficiaries of the schemes should get

all the benefits in qualitative manner. She warned that any corruption in the

implementation of schemes related with the poor people would not be

tolerated. She said that solar street lights should be installed in Ambedkar

Gram Sabhas. Asking the officers to ensure de-silting of the canals, she said

that the Irrigation Department should prepare a detailed work plan for it and

inform the Government about it. She said that the senior officers of the

government should carry out surprise inspections of the de-silting work.

Regarding plantation, she said that this work should be done with full

seriousness. She said that for Bundelkhand a plantation scheme for planting

about 21 lakh saplings at an area of 7,000 hectares had been prepared. A

similar scheme should be prepared for Vindhya region as well, she said. She

directed the officers to fill all the vacancies created in the new districts.

The C.M. directed the officers that action taken, on the pending matters

referred to by her, should be sent to her immediately. She said that any laxity

in it would not be tolerated. She directed the senior officers of the

Government that while carrying out surprise inspections to check out on-thespot

progress of various schemes, they should not confine themselves to the

district and tehsil HQ only; instead they should also visit the interior rural

areas for inspection and meet the beneficiaries of various schemes to take

their firsthand feedback.
