This week we’re sharing a wonderful new film about Padmasambhava, or Guru Rinpoche as the Tibetans know him.
Revered for centuries in the Himalayan regions as the second Buddha, Padmasambhava’s influence is now a global phenomenon, carried across the world by refugee lamas, following the Chinese takeover of Tibet in 1959.
Precious Guru is a tribute to the resonance of Padmasambhava’s realisation, which is still a vibrant reality for many thousands of people today. The voices that tell his story include Tibetan monastics and lay people encountered by the production team on their Himalayan travels, as well as accomplished lamas like Mingyur Rinpoche (brother of our own dear Tsoknyi Rinpoche), western Buddhist teachers like Lama Tsultrim Allione, Lama Glenn Mullin and Professor Robert Thurman.
Highly recommended.
