Summary
The Head Chef (dianzuo) of a remote mountain Chan (Zen) Buddhist monastery in Southern China explains the traditional cultivation, distribution, and ritual offering of food in this Buddhist community. Follows the gathering of local fuels and farmed vegetables, and witnesses how living members of this community work in harmony with elements of their physical environment to provide the supportive infrastructure surrounding the Meditation Hall, where a group of cloistered monks devote themselves to meditation practice. Includes footage of monks sitting in the Meditation Hall, farming land, gathering bamboo off the surrounding mountainsides, cooking on wood-fire stoves, and feeding their resident brothers in the disciplined, ritualized manner traditional to this 1200-year-old monastery
