No word if he was forgiven for "Nights in Rodanthe."

Namaste.

To the first comment on this page, Why is Buddhism a joke?
It is considered the most peaceful religious practice on earth. When other religions fought eachother with weapons and killed thousands, buddhists gave up their weapons for exchange of temples of meditation. Richard Gere is a kind gentleman and this is anything but a photo op. gere has been practicing buddhhism for many years, and like a catholic, meeting the pope is a religious journey, gere meeting his holiness the 14th dalai lama is very spiritual.

Nights in Rodanthe was actually a good Romantasy- Romantic yes...Fanstasy yes. It shows you how women WANT to be treated, but not necessarily how they are treated by men!

That was an awesome movie and tear jerker! And just because you do not believe in that religion, doesn't mean it is a joke or is wrong. Freedom of religion, people. why don't YOU get a life.
At least Richard is willing to travel across the world to pay respects to what he believes in. If only the rest of us were so lucky to ba able to be so close to the religous leaders that mean so much to us. Show respect!

Hmmm, I wonder how the cameras got there????

Ohhh, I forgot Richard Tiffany Gere (that is his real middle name) is super important because he pretends for a living.

Whatdidyousay,

Why are you getting all huffy about someone saying something about Buddhism and Richard Gere?

You are on an entertainment website and you want to have an intellectual argument??? Are you serious? Now if you guys were talking/arguing about Richard Gere movies maybe I would get that but....

I think there something wrong with you.
It is called bating....figure it out.

"Forgiven" for Nights in Rodanthe? Buddhism does not offer forgiveness. Richard Gere will have to stand before God all on his own. Ouch!

Going on TMZ to learn about religion is like learning how to diet from Kirstie Alley. You idiots, there isnt a God in Buddhism, it's within yourself.

OK! Good! There you have some good examples of people you can use as references if you want to ask someone what "Buddhism" involves. Richard Gere, the Dalai Lama and no doubt millions of others. Wikipedia, Google it, Amazon.com it, you get the picture. But NOT Tiger Woods, OK? Get that clear.

Gere is a nut job. I bet Cindy Crawford could tell some great Gere stories but she seems too classy to air his dirty laundry. Then again, she probably hopes everyone forgets that she was married to this clown.

If Buddhism worships the god within yourself.
It's worship of the human spirit.
The bible teaches that this is pride and that only God should be worshipped.
Pride was Satan's sin
The human spirit is dead before becoming born again.
Jesus said you need to become born again in John Ch 3.
Read it if You're seeking a relationship with a God who is greater than Yourself.
