Every morning at Berkeley Monastery and the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas we bow to our lineage of ancestors, to keep their memory fresh in our minds. At the start of the list we bow three times to our teacher's teacher, the late Chan Master Empty Cloud, of True Suchness Monastery. True Suchness Monastery, on Cloud Dwelling Mountain, in Jiangxi Province in China, is a thriving community of meditating monks who keep a 1200 year old meditation tradition alive, who also farm the soil, grow their own tea, eat vegetarian food and live amid a misty landscape that seems to have been lifted from a thousand-year old Chinese landscape painting. Ted Burger's new film, "One Mind" shows the daily life of the monks of True Suchness Monastery in exquisite moving images and sounds. Ted, an indie film-maker who lives in China, took his camera into the monastery, gained the trust of the monks as he meditated and worked with them and with this film has opened a window to the rarified space of the mountain-top. His previous film, "Amongst White Clouds," introduced the world to the hermits of Zhongnan Mountain, where individual Buddhist monks and nuns carry on solitary practice of meditation and reflection as it has been done for centuries. “One Mind” shows us how the Sangha community of monks lives together while sustaining their practices, combining work, meditation, devotion and service into a living spiritual path.
