Writer Statement

Although I was born in the Buddhist country: Thailand, I became interested in Buddhism only recently, when a crisis struck. Having been an atheist for a long time, I fell hard and shook to the reality when facing a simple truth about life: impermanence and sufferings.

I renounced my career to travel to India, Bhutan, Nepal, Myanmar and Thailand in search for Buddhist teachings. Over those years, I have learned so much and wanted to share my knowledge with western audiences.

The fact that I am an east-meets-west person, an American/Asian makes me perfectly qualified to craft this screenplay about Buddhism and Buddha for western audiences.

I hope you find this screenplay entertaining and inspiring.
