Thai Buddhist Sect – photo essay

Many thanks to my good friend Dr Paul Fuller, for pointing me in the direction of THIS article at Foreign Policy Magazine.

It is about the Dhammakaya movement (this is the link to their official website – some interesting pics HERE too),and the piece uses the word ‘cult’ rather easily. The movement (read a little HERE about it) has had controversy in the past, but remains hugely popular in Thailand and beyond. What is more striking about the Foreign Policy article is the truly amazing photos: they are copyrighted – so I won’t re-post – but well worth it…


You can see a Dhammakaya Promotional Video below if you’re interested…. (a clearly an ‘insider’ perspective from the organisation –  with some cheesy music – but interesting)


Cheers,
Dave
