    Tibet - Travel Video.
    DVD. 7 Days. 52 Minutes. Tibet is a relatively little known and mysterious land of snow high up in the Himalayas that borders Nepal, Bhutan and India. It is protected by the highest mountains in the world and is a region that has developed a unique society whose philosophy, art and religious faith have earned much interest and respect. Lhasa is the capital of Tibet and also its largest city. The Barkhor Road extends for 800 meters around the Jokhang Temple and nearby Tsuklakhang Square. For the faithful a visit to the Jokhang Temple is the highlight of a long and arduous pilgrimage and the Dalai Lama once sat in its inner courtyard during the monks' annual final examination, which was also a splendid festive event. On the other side of the Chakpori, a small mountain opposite Potala, is the seldom visited Sang Gya Thong Ku Temple that is somewhat hidden away and therefore off the tourist trail. This `temple of a thousand images of god' is nevertheless very popular among devout Buddhists and is a place of silent prayer. The Yarlung Valley is full of history such as possessing the oldest field in Tibet, as well as the oldest village that is located at the foot of the country's oldest fortress, Yom Bu La Khang, the rock palace of the country's first mystic king. One of the largest monuments in Tibetan architecture is the unique Kumbum Ch?rten, a three-dimensional mandala that can be entered. Eyes decorate the upper part of the Stupa. The ritual walkabout begins on the lowest level with simple deities then follows the entire Pantheon of Tibet, immortalized in both sculptures and wall paintings. Despite Chinese influence, Tibet is still a religiously devout country with a fascinating monastery culture and amazing natural scenery. Tashi Delek! Happiness and Blessings! On the "roof of the world" one is always close to the gods!

    Potala Tibet - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. The mighty Potala is of the most amazing palaces in Asia and is located high above the Tibetan capital of Lhasa. It is the former winter residence of the Dalai Lama and is situated on Mount Marpori. Since the exile of the fourteenth Dalai Lama in1959 the palace has not been lived in and today is more like a museum. The thirteen floors of the palace complex measure three hundred and fifty metres long and a hundred and seventeen metres high. It consists of two sections, the White and the Red Palace whose central area was mainly used for religious ceremonies. The Dalai Lama's winter residence is situated higher than any other palace in the world and for those who have walked the arduous ascent to the top, a fascinating insight into the past life of this revered religious leader, awaits. Fortunately, Potala is one of the few cultural monuments in Tibet that has survived China's Cultural Revolution unscathed. Yet despite the politics that engulf it, the magnificent Potala Palace is still a remarkable symbol of religious authority.

    Samye Gonba Tibet, China - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Samye Gonba is the oldest monastery in Tibet and one of the most important historic landmarks in Yarlung's Valley Of Kings. A circular wall that contains a hundred and eight chortens surrounds the large monastery complex. The Samye Monastery was designed strictly according to the Buddhist principles of the universe and India's Temple Of Otantapuri served as its model. The main temple in the centre of the monastery symbolises the mystical Mount Meru that is surrounded by four temples, each located in one of the four directions of the compass. The introduction of Buddhist monastery culture and the decline in the Bon system of faith with its demonic beliefs, gave Tibetan society a new structure. Despite its great age and dramatic history, Samye is still one of the most beautiful and unique religious sanctuaries in Tibet.

    Shigatse Tibet - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. With its population of forty five thousand, the city of Shigatse is not only Tibet's second largest city and administrative centre for the south of the country, it also boasts one of the most beautiful monastery districts in the Himalayas. The Tashilunpo Monastery, the `Mountain Of Blessing', is situated at the western end of the city that lies at an altitude of three thousand nine hundred metres above sea level and is closely associated with the second most important spiritual heads of Tibet, the Panchen Lamas. The sight of the faithful who walk with their prayer mills around the monastery complex is quite an experience for most Westerners who come here and despite the severe political climate of the recent past the significance of Tashilunpo for the Tibetan people remains just as strong today as it has always been. Shigatse and the historic Tashilunpo Monastery will no doubt attract great hordes of pilgrims for many years to come.

    Item Code : KINO2541

    Himalaya. Kino Studio.
    This is an age old tale set in an ancient village in the Himalaya. The old village chief insists on waiting to take a yak caravan over the mountain on the specific date given by the oracles. A young whippersnapper, Karma, who would like to take over the Chief's role sooner rather than later, insists on leaving immediately before the weather turns foul. Both are stubborn, insistent and unmoving in their decision of when to leave. Both can't be correct or can they? This is a contest between each man and the mountain and everyone wins, because "there are no accidents". A breathtaking film cinematically and one that echoes the spirituality of the Tibetan people. Bruno Coulais' soundtrack for this film is absolutely perfect. Eric Valli's direction is amazing considering the cast are not actors. This movie will stay with you for a very long time. This is a movie, but it also pays very close attention to the life of the Dolpo-pa people, and as such, it not only presents a story, but captures a "culture in time" that few of us will ever experience. We may walk through these people's villages, or hire them to carry our gear, but we never can participate in their personal lives. Eric Valli, whatever his ulterior motives in creating this film (if any), had to have been driven by a love of the people and mountains to put this together. In an era of globalization and the loss of cultures and languages every year, films of this kind have great anthropological and human geographical value. It's too bad that more Eric Valli's don't exist to preserve our vanishing human heritage. When presented as a story, it can reach a much wider audience than a standard documentary; the story pulls the viewer into the lifestyle.

    Norbuling Ka Tibet - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Around seven kilometres west of Lhasa's city centre and set within a huge park is the former summer residence of the Dalai Lama. The Norbuling Ka, or Jewelled Garden, was abandoned in 1959 when the last Dalai Lama made his escape to exile. The occupation and annexation of Tibet by China forced its spiritual and political leader to leave his homeland in the Himalayas. Adding to the splendid buildings and gardens of his predecessor, the eighth Dalai Lama further enhanced the grounds with beautiful pavilions and glorious scenic splendour. The most outstanding building that dates back to that time is the Tuzin Palace. On the western edge of Norbuling Ka Park is a building that dates back to the twentieth century, the palace of the thirteenth Dalai Lama where the Jiansel Potrang once contained a precious collection of ancient thankas, the colourful banners of Tantric Buddhism. The Jewelled Garden of Norbuling Ka well deserves its name and the summer residence of the Dalai Lama and its spacious parks are historic and much loved treasures of a bygone time.

    Tibet: On the Edge of Change - Travel Video.
    Questar Video. When Frank Capra made his classic "Lost Horizon" in 1937, he depicted the strange land of Shangri-La where health, peace, and longevity reigned. Tibet was that mystical land. Three-time Emmy Award-winning cinematographer William Bacon brings back an up-to-date look at this hidden land of two million who occupy an area twice the size of Texas. Known as "the roof of the world," Tibet has an average elevation of 16,000 feet above sea level. Virtually surrounded by mountains, including the Himalayas, Tibet is bordered by India, Bhutan, Nepal, and Burma. But its giant northern neighbor China is posing a threat to Tibet's traditional, protected ways. The expulsion of the Dalai Lama (spiritual leader to millions of Buddhists worldwide) has stirred American curiosity about the Tibetan people and the many changes being brought about by the occupying Chinese. See the mystical capital city of Lhasa. Enter the sanctity of a Tibetan monastery as the monks engage in the ancient art of religious debate and chant their haunting mantras. The video captures an inside look at Tibet's past, present, and its very uncertain future. 55 minutes "Engrossing documentary...often mesmerizing program" - Chicago Tribune
