Every once in a while, I stumble across something wonderful in the course of my classwork. This time, it was a documentary from Pilgrim Films about a Buddhist monk who started a home for unwanted children. Tashi and the Monk is filled with the sound of children laughing, playing, learning and healing. I rejoiced in the happiness of 85 formerly unwanted and unloved children who found a family, a home, and a steadfast father figure who dedicates himself to making sure they have the childhood he never got. Easily the best 40min you’ll spend this week.
‘Til next time,
P.S. Did I mention Tashi and the Monk won an Emmy for Outstanding Short Documentary in 2016?
