Dalai Lama at Univ. of Hawaii
This self-reputed "transformational" documentary has the 14th Dalai Lama sounding more like the character George Lucas ("Star Wars") created in his honor, Yoda, than he has ever sounded. (Or was it actually Tsenzhab Serkong Rinpoche? That unmistakable voice, wisdom, syntax... no, Yoda's modelled on this Dalai Lama for sure).

In the guise of wise
Yoga Soup will be screening Awakening, Volume 2 of the award-winning "Dalai Lama Renaissance" (available on DVD). 
Harrison Ford narrates, and the film also features quantum physicists Fred Alan Wolf and Amit Goswami, radio host Thom Hartmann, revolutionary social scientist Jean Houston, Rev. Michael Beckwith ("The Secret"), and others.
