This is a video for the International Mahayana Institute, a non-profit organization that helps provide resources and funding for westerners who have ordained as Buddhist monks and nuns. I shot extensive footage for a second video about Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s house in Santa Cruz which is a beautiful and inspiring place, but I soon got too sick to finish working on it and haven’t been able to complete the project. I hope to be able to return to this kind of work someday.
