The Mindful Way

A 3-part series of a BBC documentary about the Buddhist monks following the Thai Forest Tradition. This practice undertaken by the monks follow very closely the original path practiced by the Buddha and the monks during his time.

The abbot, Ven. Luang Por Chah, or Ajahn Chah as he is best known by western students, trained many wonderful western teachers such as Ajahn Brahmavamso and Ajahn Sumedho. Ajahn Chah’s teachings are simple, clear, direct and devoid of speculation and superstition, the closest to the word of the Buddha as I have ever come across.
