A contemporary look into the age-old quest
20 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

I met Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche (the teacher) before I had heard about the film. I then read the reviews and was initially duped by the negative comments. Recently I met Luc (the Vancouver student) at a meditation retreat and found him to be much wiser than he lets on. I had purchased the DVD and watched it for the first time yesterday. It's one of those films that you can watch again and again and discover another profound teaching hidden in the words - if you're willing and able to go there. If not, then it will not seem useful. DKR carries on the traditions of the great masters of the past and is an important bridge that transcends ancient Eastern teachings to the "modern" Western minds.

For non-practitioners, it is a good introduction to Buddhism. And those who are, there are many insightful comments about finding a good teacher. In either case, there are life lessons that are very profound.
