Himalayan Film Festival: Feature Film – The American Rimpoche
24 Nov 2016 | Thursday 7:30pm to 9:10pm
A Film by Nikki Appino
Music composed by Philip Glass
The Dalai Lama has achieved rock-star status and many spiritual seekers have turned to him and many Tibetan masters for answers to today’s pressing conflicts and concerns.
One such Tibetan master is Gelek Rimpoche. Born into the aristocracy, he trained as a traditional monk but was forced to flee in 1959. He has lived an extraordinary life spanning continents, customs, and cultures. No longer in monks robes, now a citizen of the United States, Gelek Rimpoche finds a new title: American Rimpoche.
