84000 Words of the Buddha.

As the world moves forward, language changes over time.Some languages are lost forever, or fade into obscurity only to have accurate translations go with them. Such is the case with the original teachings of  Buddha which are carved into wooden planks in an original dialect of the Tibetan language. The animation below from Giant Ant is a visual feast promoting the 84,000 project which is tackling the enormous task of translating 95% of Buddhist texts that have never been translated into modern languages. The animation is a flowing visual treat of rich colors and shapes that morph into the symbolizes the teachings of the Buddhist faith. This combined with a soothing narrative by Russell Brand, and a simple call to action make this a winner.
