The Mindful Way – Ajahn Chah

The Mindful Way – Ajahn Chah

This short documentary, made in 1977, shows the daily life in the main monastery of Ajahn Chah, Wat Pah Pong in Ubon Rachathani, Thailand.

The highlights of the film are inspirational short fragments of Ajahn Chah himself, in which he talks about life as a monk, Dhamma and meditation.

We also get a glimpse of a still young Ajahn Liem (now head of Ajahn Chah’s monasteries) as a respected young monk, and Ajahn Anan (one of the monastery’s leading meditation teachers) walking behind Ajahn Chah during pindapata.
