DVD: Buddha´s Lost Children

Tonight I watched on DVD the documentary movie "Buddha´s Lost Children" about a former Thai Kick Boxer who is after his career now a Buddhist monk, working in the north of Thailand with children and doing there a very impressive work. Really enjoyed watching this excellent movie.



Found another nice video on this movie at YouTube:

Buddha's Lost Children is a beautiful documentary from the Dutch filmmaker Mark Verkerk. He follows the Thai Buddhist monk Khru Bah, who dedicated his life on helping the people in the villages and training orphans to be good Buddhists. The area he lives in is very poor and a lot of people are addicted or have been addicted to drugs. He bless them and teach them the good and bad things in life.
He also takes care of little orphans and with his help they can learn to take care of themselves and others, they have enough food and are able to go to school.

Music: Tibetan Incantations - Om Mani Padme Hum.
Chants of Tibet: The Meditative Sound of Buddhist Chants

Om mani padme hum (Derived from the Sanskrit, Devanagari ॐ मणि पद्मे हूँ, IAST oṃ maṇi padme huṃ) is probably the most famous mantra in Buddhism, the six syllabled mantra of the bodhisattva of compassion, Avalokiteshvara (Tibetan Chenrezig, Chinese Guanyin). The mantra is particularly associated with the four-armed Shadakshari form of Avalokiteshvara.
The Dalai Lama is said to be an incarnation of Chenrezig or Avalokiteshvara, so the mantra is especially revered by his devotees.
