"The Great Legacy" Movie

"The Great Legacy" is a simple yet deeply inspiring movie that was shot in Phaung Daw Oo School of Madalay and the surrounding areas in Burma. All the actors and actresses in this movie are volunteers. This film was made without any audiovisual professional experience or professional equipments; it is simply shot with only one simple camera. The full movie is available on youtube in English, Burmese, French, Spanish and perhaps other languages also. Also nice to watch after the movie is the 10 minutes interview video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Vs5fVyZTEE

Mae Chee Kaew: Modern Era Arahant

Just finished reading the book, "Mae Chee Kaew: Her Journey to Spiritual Awakening & Enlightenment" and am profoundly inspired by it.  She is revered as a modern enlightened Buddhist saint in the Thai forest tradition of Ajahn Mun and Ajahn Maha Boowa and had been taught by Luang Phor Mun.

"Mae Chee Kaew (1901- 1991) was a countrywoman, who lived a simple village life in the northeastern region of Thailand and overcame enormous difficulties in her attempt to leave home and follow the Buddha's' noble path. Blessed with the good fortune to meet the most renowned meditation masters of her era, Mae Chee Kaew took their teachings on meditation to heart, diligently cultivating a mind of clear and spontaneous awareness. Her persistence, courage, and intuitive wisdom enabled her to transcend conventional boundaries--both those imposed upon her by the world and those limiting her mind from withing--and thereby find release from birth, ageing, sickness and death.
Mae Chee Kaew is one of the few known female arahants of the modern era and testimony to all beings that regardless of race, gender or class, the Buddha's goal of supreme enlightenment is still possible."
