This research aims to explore the use of video art based on contemporary/western performing art and visual art techniques to convey eastern philosophy of Buddhist teaching of Truth or Dhamma. The qualitative methods were used for data collecting and analysis. It is found in this research that contemporary/western video art techniques could facilitate the artist to better connect with ancient eastern philosophy of Buddhism. The video art based on contemporary/western performing art and visual art techniques could deeply embrace contemporary context conducive to the self-exploration of the artist. Thus, it could lead the artist to the intuitive understanding of Buddhist philosophy which generally explains the nature of human mind and nature.
