Zen master Bernie Glassman compares Jeff Bridges’s iconic
role in The Big Lebowski to a Lamed-Vavnik:
one of the men in Jewish mysticism who “are simple and
unassuming, and so good that, on account of them, God lets
the world go on.” His buddy Jeff puts it another way. The
wonderful thing about the Dude, he says, is that he’d always
rather hug it out than slug it out.
For more than a decade, Academy Award–winning actor Jeff
Bridges and his buddhist teacher, renowned Roshi Bernie
Glassman, have been close friends. Inspiring and often
hilarious, The Dude and the Zen Master captures their
freewheeling dialogue about life, laughter, and the movies
with a charm and bonhomie that never fail to enlighten and
entertain. Throughout, their remarkable humanism
reminds us of the importance of doing good in a difficult world.
