If we’re afraid of pain and always try to change it to pleasure, we’ll end up even more ignorant than before.

Freeing the Mind When the Body Hurts

Freeing the Mind When the Body Hurts

Vidyamala Burch

The human body is fragile; in our lives, pain and illness are inevitable. The Buddha himself, although he spoke unceasingly of the mental freedom he experienced, was no exception: he clearly lived with a degree of physical discomfort, especially toward the end of his life. This month, join mindfulness teacher Vidyamala Burch who has lived with severe chronic spinal pain for 40 years following injuries resulting in partial paraplegia in her teens. Drawing on central Buddhist texts, Vidyamala will uncover the key to the Buddha’s mental freedom and provide pointers for living with ease, even when the body is hurting.

Golden Kingdom is the first international feature shot in Burma since the Buddhist nation opened again to the outside world. The story follows four orphan boys—novice monks—who begin experiencing bizarre, otherworldly phenomena after their monastery’s head abbot departs on a long journey.
