Storyboard Text

  • Lily’s father read to her every night before bed. One night Lily’s father brought in a very old looking book and told Lily that he was going to teach her about something called the Eightfold Path. It looked kinda weird to Lily, but nonetheless, she was interested. Lily’s father told her that the Eightfold path belonged to a culture that followed the teachings of a man named Buddha and the eightfold path was the way to reach enlightenment, a total understanding of the world.
  • So every night, Lily’s father would read to read about the eightfold path and challenge her to try to follow Buddha’s teachings. The first path is called Sila, or morality. It includes right livelihood, action, and speech. So, during career day, Lily decided that she wanted to be a teacher so she could help kids to learn about the world, like her dad did for her. Lily studied really hard to make her dream of being a teacher come true. She also had to refrain from procrastination to ensure her success. Lily is always conscious of what she says so she never insults anyone.
  • The second path is called Samadhi, or concentration. It includes right concentration, right mindfulness, and right effort. Lily makes sure to concentrate on her family, friends, and school work. But she ignores peer pressure and self doubt. Whenever Lily is sad, she focuses on what she's thankful for. It’s hard work, but worth it in the end!
  • The third path is called Panna and it includes right understanding and thought. Lily loves her new ideology and understands that she would have never achieved as much as she did without the teachings of Buddha
  • Because Lily studied hard and always remained positive, she graduated at the top of her class…
  • And became every student at Yale’s favorite professor
