南傳上座部佛教大約於西元七世紀,傳入中國雲南西雙版納地區。在千百年的傳承中,逐漸成為傣族等少數民族的全民信仰。然而在文革時期,傣族的佛教信仰遭遇嚴重衝擊。一個民族的信仰體系如何復蘇?佛學院的創辦能否解決僧才越來越少的問題?


Theravada Buddhism was introduced into Xishuangbanna region in Yunnan of China at around the seventh century. In its thousands of years of heritage, it gradually becomes the religion of the minority ethnic groups such as the Dai people.   However, during the Cultural Revolution, the Dai people's faith in religion was sorely tested. How does an ethnic group restore their faith in their religion? Can the establishment of Buddhist colleges solve the problem of diminishing number of monks?
