Daily Dharma

The relationship of religion to truth is like that of a menu to a meal. The menu describes the meal as best it can. It points to something beyond itself. As long as we use the menu as a guide we do it honor. When we mistake the menu for the meal, we do it and ourselves a grave injustice.

– Rabbi Rami Shapiro “Buddhism Meets Hasidism”

Mindfulness and Murder

Mindfulness and Murder (Sop-Mai-Ngeap) is an award-winning feature film based on a series of murder mystery novels by former Bangkok Post writer Nick Wilgus. When a homeless boy living at the youth shelter run by a Buddhist monastery turns up dead, the Abbot recruits Father Ananda, a former policeman, to investigate the case. He discovers all is not well at this urban monastery in the heart of Bangkok.
