The Sacred Sites of the Dalai Lamas (DVD)

by: Michael Wiese
(An imprint of Michael Wiese Productions)

A remarkable film visiting the sacred sites of the Dalai Lamas in Tibet, a pilgrimage with translator and author Glenn Mullin. This fascinating journey explores the caves where the early Buddhist masters meditated, enters the monasteries where the Dalai Lamas and others taught, and – at an altitude of over 16,000 feet – looks down into the famous oracle lake of Lhamo Lhatso where every Dalai Lama has had prophetic visions.

    Sacred Sites is visually rich, with footage of an incredible variety of Buddhist sites. While its sprawling outdoor shots of mountains and valleys are gorgeous, the real beauty of this documentary is in how it captures ordinary people in their environments….offers a glimpse of things so rarely seen.Sacred Sites is an excellent film for anyone interested in making a religious pilgrimage, and is probably the closest one can get without actually going.

  2. :
