In Nangchen, an isolated corner of Tibet, Buddhists have practiced their spiritual works for centuries. In the early 1800s, Tsoknyi Rinpoche I, established a most impressive system of nunneries throughout Tibet to offer the same opportunities afforded to monks.
During the last 40-50 years, the Chinese military has been destroying monasteries and nunneries throughout Tibet, forcing many Buddhists into increasingly remote places of hiding in order to survive. This inspirational short film introduces us to a group of nuns who persevere through great hardships to carry on the tradition of their spiritual works.
Admission to this special one-time screening is $10.00, with all proceeds going to the Tsoknyi Nangchen Nuns Preservation Project, which uses the funds to provide basic food and shelter for those displaced by the Chinese government. This short documentary includes vast landscapes, big skies, ritual pomp and circumstance and lots and lots of love.
It is part pilrimage, travel adventure and dharma experience.
