If you enjoy documentaries, art, Buddhist thought, or the idea of a monastic life, you may really enjoy this movie. I did. Very much. The story is engaging, the art is excellent, and the lessons within are well worth the time.

What this movie reminded me:
The Buddhist way is to: a) be a better person, b) be a less selfish person, and c) develop a concern for others.

The way to achieve these:
Be simple
Be direct
Be selfless
Be generous
Be humble
Be patient
