After movie Question and Answer session with Rev. Heng Sure – the chairman of the Delegation of monks and nuns of the city of 10,000 Buddhas.

“One mind” is a rare film image of one of China’s most severed and respected communities in China. Minisi Monastery Chan Zhenru follow the strict monastic principles created over 1200 years ago by the patriarchs of the founders of Zen in China. In harmony with their land, they run a farm, grow tea and collect bamboo for fuel in the kitchen. At the heart of this community, an isolated group of meditation practitioners sits in silence for 8 hours a day. The impressive zen version of “Great Mind” (Die grose Stille, directed by Philip Groning, 2005) “One Mind” proposes a personal look at the thriving Buddhist community in modern China.
