Beyuls - The 7 Main Sacred Lands
A series of films documenting journeys to the 7 main sacred hidden lands (Beyuls) blessed by the great Master Padmasambhava, aka Guru Rinpoche, who brought Buddhism to Tibet in the 8th Century
(Password: Y14) - Teaser footage from a short recce to Yolmo, The Hidden Land of Yolmo Snow Enclosure in Nepal, featuring a voiceover from teacher and Yolmo expert Khenpo Nyima Dondrup
My intention is to create educational, inspiring and artistic films that will appeal to Buddhist practitioners and non-practitioners alike...
To explore the internal and external journeys relating to pilgrimage and practice in these sacred lands... to help spread the knowledge, preserve Tibetan culture and encourage practitioners to make use of these special places.
The films will serve not merely as a tourist guide, but in an appropriate and respectful way share the teachings associated with these places, and provide real insights into what the lives of modern day practitioners can be like.
Featuring the wisdom of great Tibetan Masters, we follow monks, scholars, lay practitioners and local guides as we travel to these ancient magical lands, reminiscent of Shambhala.
The hope is that the the films will include interviews with:
- His Holiness The Dalai Lama
- Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche
- 11th Lelung Rinpoche
- Dilgo Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche
- Khenpo Nyima Dondrup
- Khenpo Ngwang Lendup
- Prof. Bob Thurman, (Tibet House, University of Columbia)
- Cameron Bailey, (DPhil University of Oxford)
- Dr Fabian Sanders (University of Venice)
- Naomi Levine (Author, Blessing Power of the Buddhas)
