Has anyone seen the movie _Doing Time, Doing Vipassana_? I missed it's playing at a theatre here in SF. It's about penal reform in India, and the Vipassana meditation sessions inmates perform. Seems like it might be an Eastern version of more explicitly "personal responsibility"-based techniques of enforced moral-shackling introspection in the West. The ad in the paper says "Something unique is happening in India's prisons--something that is affecting penal systems around the world."
