Golden Kingdom

Synopsis: With their monastery nestled in the jungle mountains of Myanmar, life cycles peacefully for four young Buddhist monks. One day the abbot (Sayadaw) learns he must depart on a journey through the mountain pass - a journey that may never see his return. Alone and exposed, the four young boys, led by the courageous Ko Yin Witazara, must now fend for themselves. Strange days filled with ghostly phenomena and jarring events shake the boys to the core, dramatically influencing their understanding of this world and beyond, as Witazara must choose whether to follow the master into the pass.

Go to the Buddha as my refuge.

Go to the Dhamma as my refuge.

Go to the Sangha as my refuge.

For the second time,

I go to the Buddha as my refuge.

I go to the Dhamma, as my refuge.

I go to the Sangha, as my refuge.

For the third time,

I go to the Buddha as my refuge.

For the third time,

I go to the Dhamma, as my refuge.

I've got some rice for you.

Wait.

Hand me the plates.

Here. Over here.

Spoons.

And the others.

Muse of the robe

to ward off contact with gadflies,

mosquitoes,

wind,

the heat of the sun,

and creeping things.

And also,

I use...

the robe as...

a constant...

covering...

for my...

modesty.

Give me your pillow!

I need it for my castle.

Move your stuff over there.

Move yourself over there!

Stop joking. I'm tired!

Watch this!

I can do it better.

I can...

- Sayadaw's coming!

- Sayadaw!

Homage to the Blessed One,

the Noble One,

the Perfectly Enlightened One.

Ho! Venerable master, how are you?

I'm well! Come in.

I brought a letter for you.

SAYADAW:

Food I brought for you.

Where's your cat?

- Mr. Black? He's inside playing.

- Ah, fine.

Ko Yin, come. Let's bring it in.

Sayadaw, you wished to see me?

Yes.

Please come in.

Ko Yin Witazara,

I must leave.

I have been called to the state capital

to attend to some affairs.

I do not know

how long it will be before I return.

You will be alone, as you were

before you were brought here.

All the Ko Yin are good,

but, you are the best.

You must take care of the others.

Have you understood

what I'm asking of you?

Yes, I understand.

Pull faster!

Come over and help pull!

We have to go and pray soon.

Awadadema, wake up!

Awadadema, wake up!

Go to the Buddha as my refuge.

Go to the Dhamma as my refuge.

Go to the Sangha as my refuge.

It's okay. I'll bring it in.

Wisely reflecting,

I use this food not for fun,

not for pleasure,

not for fattening,

not for beautification,

but only for the maintenance

and nourishment of this body,

for keeping it healthy,

for helping with the Spiritual Life.

Thinking thus, I will allay hunger

without overeating,

so that I may continue

to live blamelessly and at ease.

Now we're tied. One more round!

I undertake the precept to refrain

from destroying living creatures.

I undertake the precept

to refrain from stealing.

I undertake the precept

to refrain from lying.

I undertake the precept to refrain from

intoxicants, which leads to carelessness.

I undertake the precept to

refrain from eating after noon.

I undertake the precept to

refrain from entertainments.

When do you think he will return?

He will return when he can.

Why did he have to leave?

He had something to do.

Why couldn't we go with him?

Because we couldn't! Stop bugging me.

Tell us a story. You know so many.

Let's see.

Once upon a time,

many monkeys lived in Himalaya.

They all lived under a monkey chief.

The chief told them to eat up

all the fruits from the trees

and not to drop any into the river.

One mango, covered by a leaf,
