TVQS was engaged by Buddhist Library in 2006-2007 to produce a recording to inform Tsunami Aid donors of their charitable act. The recording transformed into a documentary upon meetings of strangers who offered their stories to the filmmaker over 3 visits to Hambantota.

In 2008 CE, with the confluence of many factors, many faithful Buddhist devotees pooled their aspirations and effort to spread the Buddhadharma as well as Guanyin culture, overcoming multiple obstacles and great distances to bring to Jiaxing a load of thousand-year old Nanmu logs from Myanmar. Nanmu wood constitutes premium quality architectural and sculptural material. Resistant to cracking and splitting, it is well-suited for carving Buddha images. Indeed, the ancient prime quality gold-rimmed Nanmu was reserved for royalty. Of high quality in every respect, the Nanmu of Southwest Bagan in Myanmar sports smooth-textured leaves and bark. In a favourable natural environment with sufficient nutrition and sunlight, it can grow to great heights within a few centuries. The load of top-grade Nanmu logs for this project measured five to six feet in diameter. Enormously sized and of superior quality, their trees had weathered a millennium of storms and events, and drawn nourishment from both heaven and earth.
