Description

The Great Transmission (working title) will explore the fascinating ancient history behind the great canons of Tibetan Buddhist literature preserved by the Yeshe De Project. The film will take us on a thrilling journey of knowledge, transmitted across civilizations, from the oral to written tradition and wood-block printing to modern presses, and above all, from the realm of transcendent realization to the world of written word. Exploring the roots of Tibet’s prolific body of sacred literature, we come to understand the unsurpassed achievements of Tibet’s great dharma kings, translators and masters as a peak moment of one of the world’s great civilizations. Coming in July 2015
