Episode 2: New Lesson

December 1, 2015



How does one rehabilitate a person who’s committed a crime? Is a prison sentence as punishment enough? Prison is a very negative environment, yet as we discover in this episode, Buddhist wisdom can give rise to a positive outlook even in this bleakest of places. As inmates come together for Jing Si Aphorism classes, they begin to transform from within – and even corrections staff can’t help but notice.
