  1. A friend told me The Buddha Wallah was freely available after eight years since it became available. I put the link on the blog. Within two or three days, the documentary required a password.
    I have no idea who controls the release and how to get hold of a password. The corporate world often shows little regard for values, such as sharing, giving and supporting. It has a primary value – numbers of $. I am not sure if it it is available even with payment. If you find out any info, let me know. I will pass the word on.

  2. Hello Christopher. I’ve wanted to watch this film for years and I’m glad it’s freely available, but it says I have to use a password because it’s a private video. Now what would that password be?
    Best regards to you. I hope we meet again one day.

    1. Dear Ernest, I posted on my eNews the free viewing of The Buddha Wallah. Possibly lots checked it out. So now it needs a password to block access. I will try to find out about the password. Warm wishes,
