The Dharma Bum - A Documentary


Ian Lawton, a film maker based in the midlands of Ireland, is making a film about the lost Irish historical figure, U Dhammaloka, the first western Buddhist monk.

Ian Lawton speaks in more detail about the film and of Dhammaloka as a guest on a recent episode of the Mindrolling Podcast hosted by David & Raghu of Ram Dass Love Serve Remember Foundation, which is available to listen to here or on iTunes (Episode 96) and has also written an article on Dhammaloka for Elephant Journal. There are also more articles and information available on The Dharma Bum Facebook page.

Information about how to support the project can be found on the campaign page at www.dana.io/thedharmabum where contributions can be made in exchange for rewards.
