The Dhamma Brothers.

This Sunday, May 9th on the American T.V. Channel PBS there will be a documentary on inmates at a maximum security prison who are studying Buddhist meditation.

It is titled, "The Dhamma Brothers." Check your local listings for times. In the Mountain Time Zone (U.S.) where I live it will air from 1:00a.m. to 2:00a.m.

I believe it's a re-airing of the original program but still might be of interest to you. I haven't seen it yet, so I'm looking forward to it.

~Peace to all beings~

I'm not sure but it probably is on DVD. If you have Netflix then they might have it.

After viewing the powerful and inspiring film: The Dhamma Brothers, I enrolled in a 10 day Vipassana course. After the course, I was moved to contact one of the Dhamma Brothers, Grady Bankhead.
Over time, my husband and I have become friends and included Grady in our extended family.
Grady's life story and spiritual journey is presented on his web site at:
We are proud to call Grady Bankhead our Dhamma Brother.
