    42 mins.


With Himalayan peaks as a background, the mid twentieth century saw Buddhism move further into Western and even Indian life. Ratnaketu leads a pilgrimage to the hermitages and monasteries of Kalimpong, Darjeeling and Sikkim where Urgyen Sangharakshita came into contact with Indian, Tibetan and Chinese teachers and yogis.

‘It was lovely to see all the places that I've read about where Sangharakshita lived.      

I particularly enjoyed seeing the image of Padmasambhava that had struck him so forcefully.’       

Maitreyaraja

‘The film is I think of real value to everyone in the Order or preparing to join the Order. It was good to have images to go with of Sangharakshita’s biographical writing.’
