A Temple of Profit - Wat Dhammakaya Thailand

We have mentioned a lot about the controversial Wat Dhammakaya in the blog before but have never blogged any particularly critical view. Well here it is - a very thoughtful,insightful and interesting documentary by the excellent Journeyman Pictures about the effect of this cult on the Thai middle class.

With personal Buddha statues at 30,000 Baht a pop (£600) it's not cheap !

Unfortunately the channel has decided to not allow embedding the video so you will have to follow the link - A Temple of Profit - Wat Dhammakaya Thailand

The Dhammakaya Code

To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one's own in the midst of abundance. Buddha

From a large feature wall piece to a small serene stone Buddha for that corner in your garden, it’s all here.
