Theravadan Buddhism is one of the most ancient forms of Buddhist practice and is the dominant religion of Burma (Myanmar). Sadly for the Burmese people the country is far from free and so the people pursue Buddhism to find their own inner freedom within themselves.
In order to survive the monks and nuns depend upon Sangha Dana: alms offered by lay Buddhists. By giving the lay Buddhists receives back Dhamma Dana: the gift of the Buddha’s teachings.
Dhamma Dana presents the gift of Dhamma with a moving serenity showing how the Burmese Buddhists find their own inner freedom. Filmed solely in Myanmar, the movie presents a powerful peaceful spiritual tradition that few can experience at first hand.
