Good Practice: Buddhist Chanting in Pelham, Massachusetts (2023)

Wat Santivana is situated quietly in the town of Pelham, Massachusetts. Seeming unassuming and small, the Buddhist temple, or rather, the place of practice, since it also is home to Poarn Leak and his fellow monk, is an important part of the constellation of Cambodian Buddhist communities in New England. This film documents Poarn Leak’s practice of chanting every evening.
