The Life of a Monk

A documentary series exploring the lives of regular men from all over the world as they prepare and go through training to become a monk in a temporary ordination program in Thailand.


This is a unique program unlike anything in the world that allows eligible men the opportunity to live the life of a monk for 40 days.  Some men stay for years and others stay in robes for life. The program is called IDOP which stands for “International Dhammadayada Ordination Program.”
