In a world dominated by suffering and violence, how can we create Peace in our lives?
This award-winning film which recently attained international digital release embarks on an extraordinary journey with one of the most celebrated humanitarians of all time, the Dalai Lama of Tibet. The Nobel Peace Prize winner offers a radical vision of how we can create lasting peace within ourselves and on a global level.
“I’m not a special follower of the Dalai Lama, but I spent maybe a third of the film with tears in my eyes…I found it very touching indeed. I encourage everyone to watch it, and then to share it with anyone they can – the message of peace is very precious and much needed in the world”
Complete with rare behind the scenes access and a candid personal interview, the fly-on-the-wall documentary is as close to a flesh-and-blood encounter with the Dalai Lama as you can get. As we follow His Holiness on the road around Britain during his last UK visit before stepping down as the exiled Political Leader of Tibet, the film offers an intimate portrait of the man behind the myth with his remarkable warmth, integrity, humility and playful sense of humour, and his unique gift for connecting with people on a personal level.
Offering a compelling insight into the Dalai Lama’s daily life, his escape into exile, and the political situation in Tibet, the film is lightly interwoven with historical context, Buddhist ceremonials and sweeping panoramas of Tibet and the Himalayas, capturing both the essence of the ancient, sacred realm from which His Holiness hails and his rise to prominence on the modern global stage as a powerful emissary of Peace.
