FILMING SCREENING - THE AMERICAN RIMPOCHE PG

The Dalai Lama has achieved rock-star status and many spiritual seekers have turned to him and many Tibetan masters for answers to today’s pressing conflicts and concerns.  One such Tibetan master is Gelek Rimpoche.  Born into the aristocracy, he trained as a traditional monk but was forced to flee in 1959.  He has lived an extraordinary life spanning continents, customs, and cultures.  No longer in monks robes, now a citizen of the United States, Gelek Rimpoche finds a new title:  American Rimpoche.

FROM TIBET WITH LOVE CONCERT

In a journey into the world of Tibetan chants and ritual dances, the Monks of Tibet perform sacred rituals which embody the essence of secret tantric teachings. Tenzin Choegyal draws on his traditional Tibetan roots to create original and authentic musical compositions which uniquely express his cultural heritage.
