The Buddha Wallah (2011)

Only available in Canada, United States

Christopher Titmuss is a product of the sixties. At the beginning of the seventies he traveled to India as a reporter, discovered Buddhism and became a monk in Thailand. Seven years later he “disrobed” and founded the meditation center Gaya House in England.

Since then he has been traveling around the world, holding meditation retreats in India, Australia, Israel, Palestine, Europe and the USA. His understanding of the teachings of the Buddha is clear, radical and political.

The film follows him to conflict areas in different places of the world and documents his efforts towards peace. A pilgrimage to Thailand to his former places of action illustrates the importance of deep friendship but also of the stillness of being alone for a fulfilled life. And again and again the small things in life play a great role in the search for happiness.

Thanks to Gaia, I learned about Christopher here. I decided at that moment, "I'm going to see Christopher in India." Well...its been recently since I returned. And the retreat and the teachings of Christopher were invaluable. I departed alone as part of my spiritual learning, maneuvered through not one but two cultural changes (we often call them culture shock), and maintained a silent watch of the mind.

It was a growing experience that I will never forget. I encourage you to try the same. His website is easily accessible and contains all the info you will need. Thanks Gaia, and thanks to Christopher and his supportive network (cooks, on sight team). Thank you, India.

Wishing all well,

Thought provoking and full of Buddhist wisdom, this documentary speaks to the questions so many of us have asked. With various scenes in Thailand, India and England it shares with us a model of the Noble Eightfold Path in action. Definitely worth a watch and thank you for making this film!!
