      Pali friends,

      I faintly recall that Wagner left an incomplete opera on "The Buddha".
      Parsifal has theme on renunciation based on readings from Schopenhauer.

      Here's the BBC link:

      Gombrich seems to be working with the Pali for it.

      The Germans have a natural love for Pali, on account of its ancient links
      with German.

      Metta,

      Piya
