Best Spiritual Movies on MWGE: “The Dhamma Brothers” (Mini Review)

The Dhamma Brothers
Read this mini review of David Hoffmeister's best spiritual movies on MWGE: "The Dhamma Brothers" – a documentary on Vipassana practice in US prisons.

Best Spiritual Movies on MWGE – An overcrowded maximum-security prison, the end of the line in Alabama’s correctional system, is dramatically changed by the influence of an ancient meditation program. Behind high security towers and a double row of barbed wire dwells a host of convicts who will never see the light of day. But for some of these men, a spark is ignited when it becomes the first maximum-security prison in North America to hold an extended Vipassana retreat, an emotionally and physically demanding course of silent meditation lasting ten days.

The Dhamma Brothers tells a dramatic tale of human potential and transformation as it closely follows and documents the stories of the prison inmates at Donaldson Correction Facility, who enter into this arduous and intensive program.

The essence of meditation is to allow whatever is there to arise and look at it in the light. How do I become aware that there is no future enlightenment? The “how” is to turn the mind around and look at the blocks from the state of enlightenment, where we already are in truth. The Spirit just asks for the willingness or trust first to see the world differently than we saw it before. It is just a tweak in perception.

Anything perceived as happening in the world need not be judged. You cannot have a better life or a worse life in form. You have no control over the world. The script cannot be changed. The script is the past— it is written. There is great release in knowing this, giving you full permission to be happy. It is really very simple.
