Active Buddha - Another Face of Thailand

Buddha aktiv - Thailand einmal anders

Apart from being meditative, Thai Buddhism is also active and socially oriented. Some 95% of the people are Buddhists; the country has more than 30,000 convents and 200,000 monks, «temporary» monks most of them. The film shows unknown faces of Thailand: not only Buddhist sanctuaries, but also the Luang-Ta-Boua forest monastery, which is dedicated to the protection of tigers; an internationally acknowledged holy order which offers therapy to drug addicts from all over the world, or a nunnery devoted to orphan care.
