Product Description

In the summer of 2005, renowned Buddhist teacher, Tsoknyi Rinpoche III, accompanied by a handful of western students, traveled to the Nangchen region in Eastern Tibet.

The purpose of the trip was to meet the Tsoknyi Nangchen Nuns – 3000 remarkable women who live and practice an ancient yogic tradition in nunneries and hermitages scattered across this remote, mountainous region.

BLESSINGS: The Tsoknyi Nangchen Nuns of Tibet tells the story of this extraordinary journey.

Narrated by Richard Gere, the video explores the roots of the nuns’ wisdom and compassion and shows how we, as ordinary human beings seeking happiness in a modern world, can find that same thread of sanity and inner strength in the everyday confusion of our lives.

The film inspires all of us…women and men…to open ourselves to the blessings of a full and authentic life.

"Blessings is a luminous, inspiring, and very human account that will blow open your view of what is important in life.”
--Sharon Salzberg, author of Loving Kindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness
