Groundhog Day 2014: Punxsutawney Phil sees shadow, 6 more weeks of winter
Ah, Groundhog Day ... the one day out of the whole year Pennsylvania is in the news!

Talking about Groundhog Day, did anyone see the movie by that name starring Bill Murray? I did, and I thought it was terrific - very funny. Despite the comedy it had a profoundly Buddhist philosophical message and inadvertantly referenced Samsara, the Four Noble Truths, and the laws of Karma.

I'm pretty sure it was intended, not inadvertent at all.

I'll make it a point never to see it.

Actions have consequences, every moment is a brand-new opportunity, be genuine and not phony, if you screw something up keep trying until you get it right. Those are really radical messages, best avoid them! Not to mention just about every scene is laugh-out-loud funny, gotta watch out for that kind of sneaky manipulation.. those danged evangelizing Buddhists.

If it's from the Orient it must be good. Garbage.

Well, one can be an adherent of Buddhism without believing that if it's from the Orient it must be good. Buddhism has to stand or fall on its own merit; the fact that it's from the Indian Subcontinent is irrelevant.

It's too bad that you can't get into a time machine and go back to 1971. You could choose between fifty different subcults of Buddhism and Hinduism that held that what an individual does in this life determines what he is in his next life. But it doesn't play well today for the person who doesn't live in the past.

The great Sanskrit grammarian Panini devoted his life to perfect grammar and perfect pronunciation of prayers. Hinduism, Buddhism's parent religion, believes you must get it right. Perhaps if you don't you come back as a flea.
