Boddhisatva in Metro

Watch how this guy transforms the dour crowd in a subway car. You'd think, at the start of the film, that these people were on their way to their execution. Not so. The film is 6 minutes and 47 seconds that will embolden your day.

Made by Belgian director Christine Rabette in 2003. The actual title is Merci! The Boddhisatva title was added (in Russian) by whoever put it on Youtube.

Note: a boddhisatva is someone who has attained release from the cycle of rebirths but chooses to live human lives in order to help others.

I will definitely listen to this later today! I am looking forward to it.

And it works even better on repeated playing, Kenju and Debbie.

What a wonderful way to start the day! Coffee, the computer, and laughter.

Thanks, Peggy!

Peggy Payne said...

I'm glad you gave it a look, Greta. You have the spirit to enjoy it.

Debra W said...

Funny, Peggy. At first I found myself laughing along with the people in the subway car. And then, towards the end, I felt a little bit of sadness in my heart. After thinking about it for a moment, I realized that the sadness that I was feeling came from the knowledge that so much of life can feel isolating and lonely. We need more people like this Bodhisatva in the Metro to show us how to be more joyful. Sometimes, I just try smiling at more people as I am out running errands. If they smile back, great, if not, I still feel better!

Thanks so much for sharing this! I really enjoyed it and will pass it along to my girls.

Hugs,
Debbie

Little Miss Fierce will probably try it out.

Debra W said...

That is so funny, Peggy! And you are probably right! My dad put Mikayla's(AD4) dance routine up on Utube. I will try to post the link here for you, but if it doesn't work, you can google Utube and then search Mikayla Dances and Wins in the Utube search box. Hers is the first one that comes up. I am going to write about it on my blog soon, but I thought I would share it with you first. Little Miss Fierce at her finest!

Enjoy!

Fabulous, Debbie! So much fun to see her win, as well as the dancing. She jumped so high it was hard to believe.

Debra W said...

Thanks, Peggy. I am glad that you were able to watch it. She is small physically(only 4'11"), but she is huge in spirit. I am always in awe of her enthusiasm!

Hugs,
Deb
