An Asian American, I was born in Thailand and came to pursue an MBA after graduating from a top university in Bangkok. But alas, my Thai background drove me to be an overexcited snob! When the perfect life fell apart, I immersed myself in Buddhism. I’m now cured from the neurosis and illusion by practicing insight meditation. And that drove me to craft this screenplay that expounds Buddhist philosophy.
Since its onset, my screenplay: Buddha’s Shadow has received recognitions from well-regarded film festivals and it continues to grow. In the world of many social issues, conflicts and chaos, Buddha’s Shadow answers today’s quest for a true meaning of life.
Anyone, who reads it often find it inspiring. And….this is just between you and me, you need to be cured too, don’t you?
Buddha's Shadow Budget: $30M+ | Historical ⋄ Biography A biographical tale of the Buddha’s cousin, who gives up royalty to become a monk. To fulfill his monastic vow and achieve enlightenment, he must stay away from love.
