The 2007 full-length documentary film Mystic Tibet tells the story of a 2002 pilgrimage to Tibet undertaken by a group of fifty Western students guided by FPMT co-founder and spiritual director Lama Zopa Rinpoche. With a profound well of knowledge and direct understanding of the qualities of the holy Buddhist objects and their sacred locations, Rinpoche transformed the trip into a spiritual journey of merit and benefit for the pilgrims involved, as well as for the viewers of the documentary. Rinpoche expertly supported the conditions for transformative personal experience by leading the pilgrims to many locations precious to the spiritual heritage of Tibet. These sights included the meditation caves of great masters such as Pabongka Rinpoche, Lama Tsongkhapa, and Milarepa. Other sacred sites included Ganden Monastery and the famous sacred residence of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the Potala Palace in Lhasa. View the movie trailer here.
Mystic Tibet vividly captures the grandeur and mystery of this life-changing journey. One feels intimately a part of the experience, seeing these holy objects that seem to live and breathe, enduring the hardships and receiving the blessings right along with the pilgrims. (Mandala Magazine).
