Buddha's Lost Children is a feature-length documentary film about a Thai Buddhist monk who - armed only with his faith and skills and master boxer skills - wages an inspirational battle to help orphaned children, fight drug abuse, and preserve a vanishing way of life. Written by
Buddha's Lost Children is one of my favorites ! This film touches me deeply. An amazing and splendid document about life in Northern Thailand near the border of Birma. The scenery is so beautiful. But this Golden Triangle area is notorious for the drugs culture. Life is very tough here. The inhabitants live in poverty without running water without electricity. No medical care, no schools. Of course many of their children are lost here. But since 1991 a very special man lives here: Kruh Bah, a Buddhist monk, a former Thai box champion. For me he is: the Buddhist Hero on Horseback. He created The Golden Horse, an exceptional monastery. Here Kruh Bah shelters and teaches 20 lost boys and orphans he encountered in the area. This is so moving: we see very young boys leaving their mothers and families for education and to become a novice on horseback. All boys develop many skills and learn Thai boxing and horse riding. When they are grown up, they can spread their wings and start a life of their own. But some prefer to stay here as a monk assisting Kruh Bah with his life changing work. The whole group is traveling around on horseback, changing the whole area into a better place.
