Indian Roots of Tibetan Buddhism [electronic resource]

In 1991, Buddhist expert and art historian Benoy K Behl photographed the Ajanta paintings in India, an experience that inspired him to explore the spread of Buddhism throughout Asia. In this film, he focuses on Tibetan Buddhist ideas and practices that were developed in the University of Nalanda. Study at medieval monastic universities in Eastern India was based not upon faith but on logic and pursuit of truth and knowledge through intellectual thought, discussion and debate. His Holiness the Dalai Lama and other experts speak about the Indian roots of Tibetan Buddhism and culture, including developing a Tibetan written language to facilitate the transfer of knowledge in the 7th century. The documentary includes a discussion of Indian and Tibetan Buddhist art.

Unmistaken Child

The Buddhist concept of reincarnation, while both mysterious and enchanting, is hard for most westerners to grasp. This documentary follows the 4-year search for the reincarnation of Lama Konchog, a world-renowned Tibetan master who passed away in 2001 at age 84.

He eventually presen [...]

Nepal [electronic resource]: The Road

Tibet is out of reach for refugees, who can only dream of return. Musician Tenzin Choegyal has the very vaguest recollections of Tibet, as he was spirited out by his mother and father as a young boy. But he's determined to see it once again, across the Nepal-China border. He must pass through remote, difficult terrain, including the remote Upper Mustang, where Tibetan culture is still preserved. Along an ancient trade route a major, transformative road is being built up to the Tibetan border. Some hope for modernization and an end to isolation. We consider the tension between modernity and preserving ancient culture.
