Best 40 Minutes of Your Week

tashi-and-the-monkEvery 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?
