Greetings, wise Sangha. Many of you have probably seen this, but if you have Netflix you might want to check out The Dhamma Brothers, which documents the implementation of an intensive (and apparently successful) vipassana meditation program at a maximum security prison in Alabama. (I thought it was amazing that they were able to get the program implemented deep in the Bible Belt, never mind in a prison there.)
For those of you who have seen this documentary, I am curious to know if you think a 10 day meditation program can really turn a person around from being a violent murderer to a nearly saint-like being (as some of these individuals appear to be at the end of the film). Thoughts, opinions?
