Yogis Of Tibet (2002)- Full Movie


Uploaded by on Jun 30, 2011

For the first time, the reclusive and secretive Tibetan monks agree to discuss aspects of their philosophy and allow themselves to be filmed while performing their ancient practices.

Since the invasion of Tibet over 50 years ago, China has systematically destroyed the Tibetan culture. One of the most profound losses is the tradition of the great master yogis. The entire system which supported these fascinating mind masters has been inexorably eliminated.

In order to record these mystical practitioners for posterity, the filmmakers were given permission to film heretofore secret demonstrations and to conduct interviews on subject matter rarely discussed. This profound historical, spiritual and educational film will someday be the last remnant of these amazing practitioners.

After getting permission from the Dalai Lama we set out to capture for posterity the lives and practices of these mystical practitioners.

At that time we began filming we were not certain what we would be allowed to capture on film. It was clear that, although, we had been given permission by both H. H. Dalai Lama and H.H. Chetsang Rinpoche, (the head of the Drikung Kaygu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, whose Yogis we filmed), the Yogis themselves were finding it hard to reveal these ancient secret practices.

With the encouragement of highly respected Tibetan exiles, now living in Canada, Tashi and Genyen Jamyangling, whose family was once one of the wealthiest and most financially supportive families of the monasteries in Tibet, and due to their devotion to the Dalai Lama and Chetsang Rinpoche, the Yogis agreed to break their silence and share with us what it means to be a Yogi.
