Tibetan Buddhism: "The Lion's Roar" (video)
CC Liu, Dhr. Seven, Amber Larson, Wisdom Quarterly
This documentary is about the life, teachings, and passing of the 16th Karmapa, Rangjung Rigpe Dorje. Narrated by James Coburn, we enter the world of this Tibetan spiritual master, who heads the Kagyu Order of Vajrayana Buddhism and explore the rituals and religious significance of his work.
"The Lion's Roar" takes us to northern India to see where the Tibetan leader fled and other locales of his various travels. There are interviews with high lamas of this esoteric school of Buddhism who speak of the 16th Karmapa's works and influence in Tibet and beyond. We also learn through his life some of the basic beliefs and principles of this form of Buddhism.
