This video is a recording of this important teaching, entirely in the Dalai Lama’s own words. The Dalai Lama speaks of positive and negative desire and how through training we can reduce anger and hatred and increase love and forgiveness…The Dalai Lama talks of the many methods for sustaining a calm mind and tells how in his own difficult circumstances he does so. 1-Hour

    Film #2 Compassion in Exile, The story of the 14th Dalai Lama, a film by Mickey Lemle

    Based on the text of the Dalai Lama’s 1991 autobiography – Freedom in Exile. For over 50 years the Dalai Lama has waged a non-violent struggle to negotiate with the Chinese government and to bring world-wide attention to the plight of his Tibetan people in order to save their unique culture and religion. Within this 1992 documentary film are photos of his discovery as the 14th reincarnation of the Bodhisattva of Compassion as the Dalai Lama, the story of his meeting with Mao Zedong to find peace between China and Tibet, film footage of the subsequent terror of the fall of Tibet, and a look into the many current activities of the Dalai Lama. In an interview by the filmmaker, His Holiness gives frank answers to probing questions, revealing the integrity of “a simple monk” who is the hope of the Tibetan people-in-exile to return to their homeland. The life story of the Dalai Lama is an inspiring lesson in compassion and peace and gives an answer to why we must help to save Tibet. 1-Hour
