A documentary film: Mystic Tibet - an outer, inner and secret pilgrimage

Mystic Tibet follows fifty pilgrims as they travel to the roof of the world for the spiritual adventure of a lifetime. In 2002, ordinary people from around the globe were drawn to this mystical land of enlightenment. Guided by renowned Tibetan master Lama Zopa Rinpoche, this was no common tourist trek, but a rare and powerful experience in which the invisible world of great yogis and saints was magically revealed.

This intense journey takes one directly into the culture of Tibet and its arresting, spiritually-rich landscape in a way that is not often seen. It explores the deep inner meaning of pilgrimage, which purifies the mind and creates the good heart. These pilgrims discovered more than temples and holy mountains. They touched the extraordinary potential of their minds, their enlightening nature.

In this beautifully-crafted film, we follow fifty pilgrims, traveling with Lama Zopa, as they travel to many holy places, including Milarepa’s cave, Tsipri, and Reting Monastery.

"Mystic Tibet vividly captures the grandeur and mystery of this life-changing journey. One feels intimately a part of the experience, seeing these holy places and holy objects that seem to live and breathe, enduring the hardships and receiving the blessings right along with the pilgrims. This film is a visual and spiritual treat for the eye, the mind, and the heart...evocative soundtrack with music by Nawang Khechog."-- Mandala Magazine.


"A pilgrimage with Rinpoche is not sightseeing.
It's like heart-seeing." -a pilgrim on the tour.


This DVD is availble for sale in Amitabha Buddhist Centre.
