Movie Night! Brilliant Moon

Brilliant Moon movie

Friday, Nov. 20, 7pm

Brilliant Moon chronicles the life of the writer, poet, and meditation master Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, one of Tibet’s most revered 20th-century Buddhist teachers. Known as the instructor of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Royal Family of Bhutan, his life and teachings were an inspiration to all who encountered him. Two of his admirers are Richard Gere and Lou Reed, who provide the narration for his dangerous journey out of China and the subsequent spread of his influence around the world. Brilliant Moon was filmed in Tibet, India, Bhutan, the United States and Nepal, and uses animation, rare archival footage and interviews with some of Tibet’s great thinkers, to tell his moving life story, from birth to death to rebirth. Written and Directed by Neten Chokling (Milarepa), one of Khyentse Rinpoche s students, it is an intimate, moving and revelatory look at a transcendent spiritual being.

Please enjoy this fascinating film with us. Bring something to eat or drink for our potluck table. Movie Night is free and open to the public. Our space is small, so please arrive on time.
