THE LAST DALAI LAMA?

THE LAST DALAI LAMA?

Mickey Lemle · USA · 2016 · 82 mins · PG
IMDbRotten Tomatoes

For over a thousand years, Buddhist psychology has taught techniques for overcoming negative emotions. His Holiness explains that Tibetan Buddhism is both a religion and a “science of the mind.” Anyone, from any tradition, can benefit from experiencing the Dalai Lama’s crystallized understanding of the nature of mind, and the part it plays in the creation and alleviation of suffering. The Dalai Lama thinks this precious wisdom belongs to the world, so twenty years ago, he challenged a select group of world-renowned Neuroscientists and Mind/Brain researchers to look into the workings of the mind, and prove scientifically that “Tibetan Buddhist technologies” for overcoming afflictive emotions are skills that can be learned by anyone.
On a personal level, His Holiness is now in his 80’s.  He is passionate about what he feels is most urgent to communicate to the world.  He must decide whether or not he will reincarnate as the 15th Dalai Lama, or will he be the last in this ancient lineage. --Lemle Pictures

The film also includes interviews with Daniel Goleman, Richard Davidson, Matthieu Ricard, members of the Dalai Lama's family, and features the music of Philip Glass.
