      Documentary - 30 minutes http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1486636/ Special Invitation: THIS Buddhist Film Festival, Singapore, Singapore. Best Domestic Documentary: Queens International Film Festival, New York City. Official Selection: Tel Aviv SPIRIT Film Festival, Tel Aviv, Israel. Official Selection: Wesak International Film Festival, Kuala Lampur, Malaysia. In Myanmar (Burma), “The Golden Land,” monasteries and meditation centers speckle the tropical countryside. Isolated from the many distractions of modernity, it is home to one of the most ancient spiritual traditions in the world: Theravada Buddhism. In the Theravada tradition, which is followed by over ninety percent of the Burmese people, freedom is not pursued externally; rather the Theravada Buddhists devote themselves to finding freedom within themselves. The teachings of inner liberation are propagated by the Sangha, which is the community of ordained monks and nuns. In order to survive the monastics rely on Sangha Dana: gifts and offerings given by lay devotees. It is by the merit of Sangha Dana that the ordained monastics can continue to recompense Sangha Dana with Dhamma Dana: the sacred gift of the Buddha’s teachings. These teachings are said to have come directly from the Buddha himself, preserved by oral and written lineages for more than 2500 years. Dhamma Dana presents the gift of Dhamma with a serene rhythm, revealing how the Burmese Buddhists find inner freedom. Filmed entirely in Myanmar, the film documents a powerfully peaceful spiritual tradition that few experience first hand. ©2011 Lowpressurefilms

                This is the song we picked out to sing to Rinpoche at his 50th birthday celebration June 18th, 2012. The sangha choir lead an audience of 700 at the Chan Center for Performing Arts in Vancouver. We hope Natalie Merchant doesn't mind! But the lyrics really expressed what we wanted to say to Rinpoche. While the choir sang, this video slideshow was projected on a screen above them.

Filmed entirely in Myanmar, Dhamma Dana delves deep into the Golden Lands monastic tradition and reveals how the Burmese Buddhists find inner freedom. The film presents the Dhamma with a serene rhythm; documenting a powerfully peaceful ancient tradition that few experience first hand. Dr Molini, a Burmese nun and avid social worker, provides the experience and guiding light to tell the story of how the Burmese preserve and propagate their unique tradition. In "Dhamma Dana", she illuminates the heartwarming effort of a people who transcend the influence of modern times in order to uphold the ancient tradition of Theravada Buddhism.
