Daily Dharma

Animals are people, too. As are plants. And water. And soil. This is the fundamental insight at the heart of all eco-spiritual work. But to get that insight, we have to get with the big picture. To get that insight, we have to climb a tree.

– Clark Strand, “Trees, Butterflies, and the Buddhist Moral Life”

Irrawaddy Mon Amour

Irrawaddy Mon Amour

In Kyauk Myaung, a Burmese village on the banks of the Irrawaddy River, humble street vendor Soe Ko wishes to marry Saing Ko, a quiet mason from a nearby town—but same-sex love is still forbidden by law. Irrawady Mon Amour tells the story of a young gay couple who, with the aid of LGBT activists, Buddhist monks, and village housewives, fight for their right to love and marry in a country struggling to redefine itself in the wake of a brutal totalitarian regime.

Directed by Andrea Zambelli, Nicola Grignani, and Valeria Testagrossa
