The Tung Lin Kok Yuen Public Lecture Series is pleased to present the first film in its 2009 Buddhist Documentary Film Series:


Buddha's Lost Children (2007)


In the borderlands of Thailand's Golden Triangle, a rugged region known for its drug smuggling and impoverished hill tribes, one man devotes himself to the welfare of the region's children. A former Thai boxer, turned Buddhist monk, Phra Khru Bah Neua Chai Kositto (Tiger Monk), travels widely on horseback dispensing prayers, health care, education and tough love to villagers far from the protection and support of governments or non-governmental organizations. Buddha's Lost Children gives the term "grass-roots Buddhism" new meaning, and in the end it's the children's journey we share.
