Excerpt from "Fearless Mountain"




A documentary named "Fearless Mountain" shows Western monks living in Northern California according to the Thai Forest Tradition, at Abhayagiri Monastery, in the Ajahn Chah lineage. It is a beautiful film that shows the sprouting of Buddhist life in the West, and particularly in the US. 

It was made by Ukiah residents, a father-and-son team, and a trailer can be found here. The film was so inspiring that a company was formed in its main feature's name, and a new film is now being made based on similar themes.
