We can be Buddhas - Robert Thurman (video)

(TED about this talk) Buddhist scholar Bob Thurman: In our hyperlinked world, we can know anything, anytime. And this mass enlightenment, says Thurman, is our first step toward Buddha nature.

He is a scholar, author, a tireless proponent of peace, and Hollywood superstar Uma (Karuna) Thurman's father.
