Casual discussion amongst spiritual friends.
"For some weeks, the film author Frieder Käsmann accompanies the two theravadan monks of Muttodaya Forest Monastery
in the german Frankenwald. He shows them in their daily chores, laundry, as well as in meditation, while shaving the head and while traditional celebrations of Buddhist festivals. The film author accompanies them at her charity walks through Frankish villages - and shows the open admission by the people in the Franconian Forest, without whose help and generosity they couldn't exist." Language: German.

Someone posted this in another thread recently. Very enjoyable documentary.
Through many of samsara’s births I hasten seeking, finding not the builder of this house - pain is birth again, again.
O builder of this house you’re seen, you shall not build a house again, all your beams have given away, rafters of the ridge decayed, mind to the unconditioned gone, exhaustion of craving has it reached.

definetely one of the best documentaries in german language about the theravada or the thai forest tradition in particular... it explains a lot of the duties and customs of the venerables to the german speaking audience. Really a documentary as good as this is hard to find in the german.
