Video of the First Chapter from Buddhist Wisdom Verses

For quite a time now I have been publishing extracts from my text and translation of Buddhist Wisdom Verses on this blog every Saturday.

The format is simple, a summary of the story behind the verse(s), then the verses themselves in Pali and English translation.

As always with the materials in the English section I have read this in, though here it includes both languages.

Some time ago I made a pdf of the verses together with photographs I had taken of various characters seen on the wall-murals at Borobudur.

I have now made a video out of some of this material, with pan and zoom effects of the characters as a backdrop and subtitles synchronised with the reading.

It was quite a lot of work to get all the materials in synch, and I had to remake it a number of times before I was satisfied with everything.

Now however I have a template and I may go on slowly making videos of the other chapters, though whether I will do all 28 in another matter.

The first chapter contains verses concerned with virtue, and I would be interested in any feedback I can get on the project.

If you like it, the whole text of Buddhist Wisdom Verses can be found here in various formats.
