The Cow's Meditation

Filmmaker: Melissa Flores

The cow's meditation is a performance for the cows. Although they are the ones learning to meditate, humans can also benefit from hearing the teachings. The tale 'The cow's meditation' was taken from the book "The joy of living" by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche.

And again, fabulous. Why? Because along with the deeper message was a very good laugh. Now I call THAT practice!

Hello! Your film is lovely.
Newark Community Meditation Center in NJ would like to use your film short as part of a "mini" film festival featuring "The Dhamma Brothers" documentary. Is this possible? Can reach me at to discuss. :-)
Thank you!

Hi marcie,
This page is from last year's short film contest, so I don't know that Melissa, the filmmaker, will see your comment, since she's not checking the page anymore. I went ahead and emailed it on to her. Hope you can screen it!
