The Alms Round and Being a Monk (DVD Outtake)

Here's a video which more or less fits with the blog idea, but it was made in conjunction with our DVD. Today I'm in the post-production studio, so I'm able to upload it as well. Some brief thoughts on the alms round and what it means to be a monk.


  1. I can't seem to play this on your says the video I requested is not available. Any ideas?

  2. try again now... it took some time for Youtube to process it.

  3. YES...I was able to view it...
    Quite beautiful...
    It was wonderful to see you and hear your words...and see you walking around the places you live.
    I can't wait to see the entire DVD when it's finished.
    Thanks for posting this!

    Congratulations for the show Bhante!

    I'd like to ask you about the copyright you intend to use on the full dvd. I collect and subtitle dhamma videos from the internet, and post them on youtube:
    They make us, the pessimistic hungarian people a lot happier :D

    Most of these are short videos, but there are also longer videos uploaded in parts, such as this one about the life of the Buddha:

    I'd very much like to make subs and upload your dvd as well. If you don't mind that, please contact me at press.cancel [at] gmail [dot] com
