Please join us for a community screening (with popcorn) of Road to Peace on Saturday 18th February at Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds.
This award-winning film embarks on an extraordinary journey with one of the most celebrated humanitarians of all time, the Dalai Lama of Tibet.
Complete with rare behind the scenes access and a candid personal interview, this fly-on-the-wall documentary is as close to a flesh-and-blood encounter with the Dalai Lama as you can get. As we follow His Holiness on the road around Britain during his last UK visit before stepping down as the exiled Political Leader of Tibet, the film offers an intimate portrait of the man behind the myth with his remarkable warmth, integrity, humility and playful sense of humour, and his unique gift for connecting with people on a personal level.
Offering a compelling insight into the Dalai Lama’s daily life, his escape into exile, and the political situation in Tibet, the film is lightly interwoven with historical context, Buddhist ceremonials and sweeping panoramas of Tibet and the Himalayas, capturing both the essence of the ancient, sacred realm from which His Holiness hails and his rise to prominence on the modern global stage as a powerful emissary of Peace.
The Dalai Lama beautifully demonstrates how we can all create peace in our lives on a personal and global level, so please do join us for this special social event at JBCL.
Doors open 6.00pm for 6.30pm start. Donations welcome.
Places are limited so please reserve your seat in the gompa by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
All welcome. Please note seating is on chairs and cushions on the floor.
