The Dude and The Zen Master

Bennis Glassman is a world renowned Zen teacher and advocate.  He is also good friends with Jeff Bridges, also known as the The Dude (from The Big lebowski).  These two men had been friends before the movie was released but they formed an even deeper bond as a result of the movie which has a distinct Zen quality to it.  Hailed as an underground, cult classic, “The Big Lebowski” offers up snippets of Zen wisdom through the unlikely character of Jeffrey Lebowski, a down-and-out stoner who bowls for fun and looks at life through a different set of lenses.  This interview sheds light on their reltionship and the hidden meaning of this classic movie.  This is a true treasure.
