    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Lhasa - Travel Video.
    DVD. Vista Point. 26 Minutes. Now an autonomous region of China, Tibet is an intriguing and mysterious land of snow high up in the Himalayas that borders Nepal, Bhutan and India. For centuries it was a dream destination for scientists, adventurers and missionaries and, once almost inaccessible, it was a blossoming yet hidden kingdom. Lhasa, the `holy city' and `place of the gods' is the capital of Tibet and also its largest city. The Jokhang Temple was originally built as a shrine for a special Buddha statue. In the seventh century the statue was a valuable wedding gift from the Chinese Emperor to Princess Wen Chen who had it transported to Lhasa. Around seven kilometres west of Lhasa's city centre is the old summer residence of various former Dalai Lamas. The Norbuling Ka, Garden Of Gems, has been deserted since the end of the 1950's because in 1959 the last Dalai Lama was forced into exile by the Chinese. A pilgrim trail leads up to Drepung Gonba that was built in 1416 by a scholar of Tsongkhapa who was the founder of the Gelug Order. The Gelug Academy is the earliest of the four main doctrines of Tibetan Buddhism and the followers of this order are also known as Yellow Caps. Lhasa is a a city of gods on the roof of the world and is undoubtedly one of the last mysterious locations on Earth.

    Jokhang Tibet - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Smoke from numerous sacrifice stoves fills the streets and squares of the Tibetan capital of Lhasa in the Trans-Himalayan Mountains. This City Of The Gods well deserves its lofty reputation yet it is not only the political, cultural and economic centre of Tibet but also its religious heart. Barkhor Road is eight hundred metres long and encircles the Jokhang Temple as well as nearby Tsuklakhang Square. The aroma of juniper rises from the sacrifice stoves that are to be seen all along the sacred road and traditional prayer flags billow in the breeze. Jokhang Temple has a mystic atmosphere and contains many images of daily religious life in Lhasa and was built as a shrine for a unique Buddha statue. The temple is still, more than thirteen hundred years after its foundation, a much worshipped national sanctuary as well as a vibrant centre of Buddhism in Tibet, revered home of the Dalai Lama.

    Gyang Tse Tibet - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Proud and mighty, Dzong, the fortress of the former monarch of the region, rises above Gyang Tse, the third largest city in Tibet. The fortress once accommodated the governor of the district and was the region's administrative centre. Despite certain obligations the Dzong monarch was relatively independent and was permitted to rule this region and its inhabitants. Of Tibet's original sixteen monasteries only two survived China's Cultural Revolution and particularly well known is the Sakyapa Academy Monastery that managed to survive the Revolution. One of the biggest 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. When following the traditional ritual walk through the Kumbum-Chorten, one passes symbolically through the entire Buddhist journey of salvation and into Nirvana. The journey begins on the lowest level with simple deities and then follows the entire Pantheon of Tibet immortalised by both sculptures and wall paintings. Today, in the old Tibetan trading town of Gyang Tse `all-seeing eyes of Buddha' continue to watch over the Kumbum as well as the welfare of the faithful.

    Ganden Gonba Tibet - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Around sixty kilometres east of the city of Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, and set amid the untouched mountain world of the Kyi-Chu Valley, is the town of Dagze that contains one of the country's most famous monasteries, Ganden Gonba, that was once a prosperous monastery town. For many centuries it was the religious centre of the Yellow Caps' Academy but the annexation of Tibet by China changed everything and the remote location of Ganden Gonba within an isolated valley four thousand metres above sea level was unable to protect the sanctuary from invasion. Up until 1959 around three thousand monks inhabited Ganden's monastery complex. In addition to numerous sacred treasures, the Lhakhang also houses a chapel of the protective deities that, among others, is also dedicated to Vaishravana, the deity of wealth. Surrounded by the unspoiled wilderness of Tibet's high mountain scenery, the monastery district of Ganden Gonba is most certainly well worth a visit!

    Drepung Gonba Tibet - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Ten kilometres west of Lhasa is one of the most important monasteries in Tibet. A pilgrimage trail leads up to Drepung Gonba that was built in 1416 by a follower of Tsongkhapas, founder of the Gelug Order which is the earliest of the four main doctrines of Tibetan Buddhism. The route to the monastery is quite arduous as at an altitude of five thousand six hundred metres the air is very thin. Along the way there are various colourful rock illustrations that give a foretaste of the Drepung Monastery. Drepung was once the richest monastery in the whole of Tibet and even with the country's troubled history the monastery buildings are still very impressive. Fortunately, the complex was only slightly damaged during the Cultural Revolution thus the throne of the Dalai Lama has remained in tact. The subsequent Cultural Revolution brought about much social change and most of the monks escaped and sought exile abroad. Thankfully, despite the political situation in Tibet the monastery complex of Drepung Gonba still shines out in all of its glory.
