The Victoria Shambhala Meditation Centre
In association with
The Vancouver Buddhist Peace Fellowship


Saturday October 3rd at 7:00pm
By Donation

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 an intensive meditation program. This film, with the power to dismantle stereotypes about men behind prison bars also, in the words of Sister Helen Prejean (Dead Man Walking), “gives you hope for the human race."

Prior to the film a talk will be given. The speaker at this event will be Lama Margaret Ludwig. Lama Ludwig has eighteen years of activism in the penitentiaries of British Colombia as a Buddhist chaplain. Her selflessness has planted a seed of enlightenment for those who are most in need. She inaugurated the installation of a Buddhist garden shrine at the William Head prison which she hopes may be cultivated by a new generation of volunteers.
