Storyline

"Awakening the limitless potential of your mind, achieving all peace and happiness." This thirteen-part teaching series touches on all the vital points of Tibetan Buddhism as presented in the Gelug Lineage of the Dalai Lama's tradition. Hosted by Richard Gere and Keanu Reeves, the series includes teachings with some of the great Tibetan lamas of our time as well as experienced Western teachers. Each video also contains personal interviews with student practitioners. A clear and accessible presentation of the Mahayana path for both beginners and experienced students, the series is an excellent resource whether it is used on its own, in conjunction with the Discovering Buddhism courses taught at FPMT centers, or with Discovering Buddhism at Home: An FPMT Correspondence Program. It is also a perfect gift for friends and family who may want to learn more about Buddhism. Written by Merry Colony
