| Stunning Coverage of His Holiness the Dalai Lama
Just saw this last night and I have to say that it moved me to tears at times. The filmmaker has been shooting the Dalai Lama for many years and this is up to date with footage from his 80th birthday celebration in 2015.
It shows scenes of the Tibetans and the Dalai Lama going back to 1950 when the Chinese invaded the country, follows the Dalai Lama's visit with Chairman Mao, and his eventual escape into exile. His life in exile has been extraordinary and the question of whether there will be a 15th Dalai Lama is explored and unanswered in this film. The Dalai Lama himself has said he will not be reincarnated because he does not want the Chinese involved in choosing his successor.
The future remains a mystery, but one thing is certain. This man exudes happiness and peace, in spite of the genocide of his people at the hands of the Chinese. We have a lot to learn from him.
