Presented in Partnership with Alliance Française of Greenwich
Immersed in the colorful and vibrant setting of Dharamsala (India), four individuals–from very different backgrounds–approach the transformational power of the Kalachakra initiation. Led by the Dalai Lama for peace in the world and followed by millions, Kalachakra is the most sacred teaching in Tibetan buddhism. There are seven days of preparation rituals during which the monks make the mandala and release the positive energy into the everyday world. Kalachakra means “wheel of time.” During this ritual–rarely seen on film–one enters an ancient and unknown dimension, where death meets life, and changes you forever.
