Sri Lanka: From Temple To The Village

A Buddhist monk's vision of rural development: Venerable OmalpeSobitha a Buddhist monk from the poor rural township of Embilipitiya in southern Sri Lanka set up the Bodhiraja Foundation in the 1990s to help his local community in development work. He believes that a temple should not only take from the community but also help the local community - especially in impoverished rural areas - in both their spiritual and economic development. This documentary looks at how he set about achieving this goal.

Setting up of this website was sponsored by SJ Mets Consultants PTY Ltd of Perth, Australia in memory of J.H.A. Gunadasa & S.T. Jayasinghe, beloved fathers of Sunil and Aruni.
