Bodh Gaya: The Seat of Enlightenment: A Documentary Film on Buddhism and Awakening
Adwhyta proudly presents Bodh Gaya: The Seat of Enlightenment, a short documentary film that explores one of the most sacred Buddhist sites in the world. In the Dhammapada, the Buddha says, “All tremble at violence; all fear death. Putting oneself in the place of another, one should not harm nor cause another to harm.”

This film revolves around the kind of transformation Buddhism can bring in people’s lives and the role it can play in today’s chaotic world. In the journey through the film, we explore the story of the Buddha, the historical significance of pilgrimage, and personal experiences of Buddhist monastics and lay practitioners.

Filmed, edited, and directed by MSN Karthik. Produced by Adwhyta. Shot on Canon 70D + 18-135 mm. Lens edited on Davinci Resolve 12.5.
