Endless growth on a finite planet cannot be sustained.   The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound transformation:  millions of people are deciding that enough is enough –  the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life. OCCUPY LOVE is a film that chronicles the heart of the revolution. See

Dr. James Freeman and Annapurna Pandey film-makers of The Myth of the Buddha’s Birthplace

• May 12th, 2012

freeman.jpg annapurna.jpg

We talk to anthropologists Dr. James M. Freeman and Dr. Annapurna Devi Pandey as they investigate a controversial claim about the true origin of the Buddha and their film ‘The Myth of the Buddha’s Birthplace." Returning to Kapileswar, a small village in the state of Odisha, eastern India that Freeman first visited in 1962, Freeman and Pandey search for an ancient stone inscription, which was discovered in Kapileswar nearly a century ago but has since mysteriously vanished. This stone inscription, so it is said, proclaims Kapileswar to be the birthplace of the Buddha. This claim runs counter to all established theories, since Nepal is generally accepted to be the birthplace of the Buddha. In searching for the lost inscription, Freeman and Pandey make an unexpected and significant discovery.
