Under the Bodhi Tree

Back in 2005-2006 Lenny Hoffman started a History of Humanity series, featuring important events and figures, such as Buddha's First Sermon. Siddhartha Gautama was born a prince but gave up a life of wealth and ease when seeing the suffering of common people. At the age of 35, he came to a religious awakening while meditating. Lenny illustrates his first sermon, where he laid out what would become the key tenets of Buddhism to his first followers. BTW, Lenny's been largely away from the LEGO community for a while now due to life changes (you get busy, you know), but I hope he comes back and adds to this project some day.
