The Secret World Of A Tibetan Lama (56 min DVD)
The Secret World of a Tibetan Lama As seen on PBS CRITICAL ACCLAIM "Jewel of a documentary." -Boston Globe "Pulsating with color, movement, music" -San Francisco Chronicle THE FILM Unprecedented access and intimate knowledge inform this richly detailed and beautifully filmed portrait of a secret Tibetan Buddhist ritual, the Mani Rimdu festival, and the remarkable spiritual teacher, Trulshik Rinpoche, who leads and preserves this centuries-old tradition. Richard Gere narrates with the clarity and resonant depth of an insider. This is a very special chance to witness a private sacred realm as if you were there. Just as coronation transforms ordinary men into kings, tantric empowerment transforms men into Buddhas. Hundreds of initiates gather once a year at Thubten Choling Monastery to learn to become Garwang Tojay-chenpo, Lord of the Dance. He is called this because his infinite creativity is symbolized by dance. He personifies the compassion of all the Buddhas. "If your mind is pure, everyone is a Buddha. If your mind is impure, everyone is ordinary." -Trulshik Rinpoche XI Lord of the Dance is the deity of Mani-Rimdu, the major sacred festival of the Everest region. Each autumn, Trulshik Rinpoche, the spiritual leader of the region, goes from his home in Thubten Choling to Chiwong Monastery to preside over the festival. His name means "destroyer of illusion." In Destroyer of Illusion we meet the men who undertake these tasks. We see the world through their eyes--a world where the mountains are filled with gods, and a human beings potential is limited only by his imagination and his will. Narrated by Richard Gere Written and Directed by Richard Kohn Filmed on location in Nepal
