"Blessings" - the life of Tibetan nuns (film) — "Blessings" tells the story of 3,000 nuns, living in the remote nomadic region of Nangchen in Eastern Tibet, who practice an ancient yogic tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.

Despite near extinction during the destruction wrought by China's Cultural Revolution, these remarkable practitioners have emerged to rebuild their nunneries by hand, stone by stone. Now their wisdom tradition is once again vital and growing.

In 2005, Tsoknyi Rinpoche III led a small group of Western students to meet these amazing women. Narrated by Richard Gere, with music by Ani Choying Drolma and Steve Tibbetts. "Blessings" is the story of this extraordinary journey.
