His music is also used in this film “Road to peace” as well as for many documentary and also in the Hollywood film “Seven years in Tibet “. He was monk for 11 years and lived in the foothills of Himalaya as a hermit and meditated for 4 years, sponsored and guided by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
“An extraordinary film … it just crept up on you and all of a sudden you realize the you are in the embrace of this great spirit that is the Dalai Lama. His message is so profound and so simple at the same time”
“It seems to me that it’s the key to helping unravel some of the difficulties that we have in the world. His idea of the fact that there will never be elimination of conflict, conflict will always be there, but the conflict resolution through dialogue, that’s what’s important.” – David Sanborn

“People say that watching the film feels like they have been in the company of His Holiness.They also come away feeling like they have practical tools to start changing their own lives for the better.”Unsurprisingly, shadowing the Dalai Lama has had a profound effect on the filmmaker:
“It’s been transformational. Slowly, bit by bit, I’m learning how to be at peace with myself. And I think that’s what he teaches, that person by person we can create a world at peace.”
Palm Beach Buddhist Center
Sometimes gifts come from unexpected places! When organizing the screening of “ROAD TO PEACE” at The Bamboo Buddha Cafe, Sydney, I had just two things in mind; to celebrate His Holiness’s 77th Birthday and to honour a pledge to raise funds for The Tengyur Translation Project.
What I actually gained was far more enriching than I could have imagined.
The expression of appreciation from the audience afterwards, was both overwhelming & completely disarming.
There was such a beautiful energy in the room of warm heartedness and harmony catalysed by His Holiness and the ingenuity of the film makers art. This is the gift of “Road To Peace”, that it actually engenders the feeling of peace within those who behold it.
Thank you Leon for your altruism and for allowing us to share in this profound experience.
With kind regards,
“Powerful and impactful documentary. You could feel the presence of the Dalai Lama just emanating from the screen.”
– Andrew Mondia
“Road to Peace is a remarkable film. This in part has to be true because it is about the Dalai Lama. But essentially its special quality is because through the lens of Leon’s camera, the unique personality of the man telling us he doesn’t do miracles, does indeed perform a miracle as he moves people along the Road to compassion and World Peace.
When the film ended, we in the audience went on asking questions, making comments, and relating allied experiences. There was an opening up to each other from different faith positions, in a community concern to be active in peace-making.
Get to see this film. Tell your friends and your enemies to see it!”
– Gerry Gardiner, Letchworth, May 22nd
“The film Road to Peace which follows the UK visit (date) of the Dalai Lama is full of insights into a man with exceptional wisdom.
It was fascinating to watch him travelling between British cities and drawing large crowds in order to impart his highly spiritual and pragmatic principles in a meaningful and humorous way. Sometimes just by using a few carefully chosen words the Dalai Lama is able to express his simple but profound message for humanity at this time in human spiritual evolution.
The film was truly an inspiration, and an enlightening experience into the life and philosophy of Tibet’s well respected spiritual leader.”

“Captures the Dalai Lama’s childlike energy while clearly making his compassionate way of being an example for others to follow.”
“Human and Real.”
“Inspired insight and intimate time with the Dalai Lama as seen through the eyes of British officials. His compassion for all is apparent.”
