Movie Night! Boddhisattva

BoddhisattvaFriday Feb. 26, 7pm

Mark Elliott’s documentary, “Bodhisattva”, portrays the Seventeenth Gyalwa Karmapa, one of the most important lamas in the world of Tibetan Buddhism, at a unique moment in his trajectory as a teacher: his first visit to the West, specifically, the United States. In this hour-long film, we meet not only the leader of the Kagyu Lineage, but also a young man of extraordinary warmth, humanity, and humor. The Karmapa speaks to packed auditoriums with a wisdom beyond his years, and explores with delight the many facets of a new world, from Coca-Cola to New York City, warmly engaging with all those he meets on his travels.

One could call this fascinating film a ‘sequel’ to The Lion’s Roar, about the 16th Karmapa. Please enjoy it with us, and 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.
