About the documentary:The Dalai Lama has often described India as the Guru of the Tibetan people. Today, that role in many ways has been reversed. He and the Tibetan people have been in exile in India since the Chinese occupation of Tibet in 1959 and their story continues to be one of the most significant success stories of a displaced community. The Tibetan people have managed to preserve their identity, keeping their cause alive and remaining welcome in India, while the Dalai Lama is an eloquent and influential ambassador of India’s civilisational heritage, its inclusive philosophy and the most sophisticated mind training techniques in history. The Film explores this remarkable relationship that began in the 8th Century AD.
