Buddha’s Lost Children
In the border area of Thailands ‘Golden Triangle’, a rugged region with many drugs smuggling and ethnic hill tribes, one man dedicates his life to the welfare of underprivileged children from the region. This Buddhist monk called Phra Khru Bah, once a successful Thai boxer, is one of the most controversial Buddhist monks in Thailand. He travels to all villages on horseback to distribute health care and education among villagers who do not receive any governmental support. This so-called ‘Tiger Monk’ has built an orphanage, school and hospital with his Golden Horse Temple – a safe haven for the orphans. The orphans see him simultaneously as a shaman, father figure and coach.
Beautiful film images and a fascinating story make this film a unique and moving portrait of life in the Golden Triangle. Buddha’s Lost Children gives new meaning to the term ‘practical’ Buddhism.
