Amongst White Clouds: China’s Zen Buddhist Hermits


Here is another faith lifestyle to look at: the Zen Buddhists living in the mountains of China following a 5000 year old tradition. One for the weekend…Stephanie.

American director Edward A. Burger takes us on his unforgettable journey into the hidden lives of China’s forgotten Zen Buddhist hermit tradition. “Amongst White Clouds is a look at the lives of zealot students, gaunt ascetics and wise masters living in isolated hermitages dotting the peaks and valleys of China’s Zhongnan Mountain range.” The Zhongnan Mountains have been home to recluses since the time of the Yellow Emperor, some five thousand years ago. Many of China’s most realized Buddhist masters attained enlightenment in this very range!

The director, Edward A. Burger has a blog (commonfolkfilms) and YouTube channel (edwardaburger) with trailers from his upcoming films. Check out “One Mind” which is a follow-up film to Amongst White Clouds about monastic life in a monastery in Southern China.
