What I like about this documentary is that it shows how much more comfortable venerable Dhammanando is in robes, and it makes me happy that the Buddhist holy life is available to those who wish to pursue it.
Apparently there was a lot more footage, much of it 'deeper' than what you see in the doco, but most of that stuff lay on the editing room floor... I guess that just wasn't the story the director wanted to tell.
