FREE Buddhist film archive (video)

In 1985 the Dalai Lama urgently asked the West, through the Meridian Trust, to preserve Tibetan culture at a time when its very existence was threatened by China.

In an effort to fulfill a promise to the Dalai Lama, it would be an accomplishment to transform a Buddhist Film Archive into a FREE online learning resource.

This would be for the benefit of all living beings on the planet. For the last 18 months, the Meridian Trust - Buddhist Film Archive has been digitizing, editing, and encoding more than 2,500 hours of rare film footage on Tibetan culture, traditions, artistic practices, and teachings

The mission is to put this unique archive online -- fulfilling a promise made to the Trust's patron, the 14th Dalai Lama, more than 30 years ago. 

The Trust is a few days into its Kickstarter campaign with a target to raise £10,000. This is what is needed to build a Website through which all of the material can be viewed. 

More information about the Meridian Trust and this project can be seen here. Help support the effort through Kickstarter, Twitter, blogs, posts on NSA spying media, and news outlets. Share it with fans, followers, and friends. Download a banner.
You be nice to my Michelle and Jo Boner, and stop killing people with drones! - Mm-hmm.
