AFM 2011 MARKET PREMIERE of Exclusive Extras, including footage of the enthronement ceremony of Dilgo Khyentse’s Rinpoche’s recognized reincarnation and the most complete presentation of his lineage available.
With the destruction of the Tibet’s monasteries and libraries, the ancient culture’s highest knowledge resided in one man, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche as he was the only person who was able to memorize the ancient secret teachings and formulas before escaping. Thus he became teacher to the Dalai Lama and to the King of Bhutan. A writer, poet and meditation master, Khyentse Rinpoche was an inspiration to all who encountered him.
Using animation, rare still and archival footage and filmed throughout Tibet, India, the USA, Bhutan, and Nepal, the film chronicles the life of this revered master, from the escape from Tibet to the discovery of his incarnation. The latter part of the story is an amazing proof to the fact that the most evolved masters of Tibet are able to control their reincarnation.
This moving biography is told in part through interviews with the Dalai Lama, Matthieu Ricard, Rabjam Rinpoche, and others.
