Buddha World: The Mission To Build A Buddhist Amusement Park

1 Comment

As bizarre as it sounds, there really are some folks building a Buddhist-themed amusement park in Thailand.  And, even more bizarre, when you read about what’s being done it makes perfect sense.  I put it on my list of things I’ll regret not having done when I’m facing the bardo.

But I can do the next best thing, and so can you.  A couple of young filmmakers are attempting to raise enough money to fly to Thailand and make a documentary about the park.  (No, I don’t know if they have deer in the park, so don’t ask.)  Folks have underwritten their travel and living expenses, and they’re trying to raise $4K by August 26th for equipment and other expenses.

Subscribing with a reasonable donation (minimum is $1.00) will get you various bennies like a DVD of the finished film, etc.  This is a great chance to be a part of a worthwhile effort to spread Dharma awareness.  Give the website a look, and if you think it’s worth a few bucks, cough some up.  It may be the closest you’ll ever get to a trip to Thailand.

One thought on “Buddha World: The Mission To Build A Buddhist Amusement Park

  1. Thanks for the Info, Bill! I support the exiled Tibetan Monks in India annually as it is and this is another good chance to support them, so I sent a donation. I spent 3 weeks in India last year and loved it and cannot wait to share it with my meditating (Transcendental Meditation) Girlfriend/Nurse in the fall when she retires (2013)… Keep up the good work…
