A unique Buddhist film.

IN SEARCH OF NIRVANA is the story of a Canadian photographer who unexpectedly spends five years in Buddhist monasteries in Asia, and about the teachers he met there. Filmed in Sri Lanka, Burma and Canada it is a film by meditators about meditation. Made for meditators and for those who want to understand Buddhist insight meditation, it offers a window into the living transmission of the Theravada tradition. What is mindfulness? How does mindfulness differ from mere attention? What is insight? What is Nirvana?
