In my recent posting for MahaSangha News about the 30th Anniversary Reunion of Antioch Education Abroad’s Buddhist Studies in India Program, I mentioned that one of the activities included a screening of a short documentary entitled Dhamma Dana. Made by Theodore Martland (a program alumnus from just last year), the film documents Buddhist monastic life in Burma, and is full of striking images.
Teddy is selling copies of the DVD at his website for $12.82, and 100% of the profits will go to benefit the good work of our mutual friends Sister Molini and Sister Dhammavijaya at the Dhamma Moli Project. The Dhamma Moli Project, which is based in Nepal, provides shelter and education to young Nepalese girls who are at risk of falling victim to the South Asian sex trade or other forms of exploitation.
As an addendum, please enjoy the photo below of me with Sister Molini and Sister Dhammavijaya. The photo was taken by Phelps Feeley just a couple of weeks ago at a Thai restaurant near Dayton, OH.
