How do you reconcile a commitment to non-violence when faced with violence? Why do the poor often seem happier than the rich? Must a society lose its traditions in order to move into the future? These are some of the questions posed to His Holiness the Dalai Lama by filmmaker and explorer Rick Ray. Ray examines some of the fundamental questions of our time by weaving together observations from his own journeys throughout India and the Middle East, and the wisdom of an extraordinary spiritual leader. This is his story, as told and filmed by Rick Ray during a private visit to his monastery in Dharamsala, India over the course of several months. Also included is rare historical footage as well as footage supplied by individuals who at great personal risk, filmed with hidden cameras within Tibet. Part biography, part philosophy, part adventure and part politics, "10 Questions for The Dalai Lama" conveys more than history and more than answers - it opens a window into the heart of an ...Written by

The 10 Questions for the Dali Lama by Rick Ray: In the movie, Rick Ray has set up an interview with Tenzin Gyatso, the fourteenth Dali Lama. Before the interview, Rick Ray has a lot of time to discover the land that the Dali Lama grew up in and ruled, Tibet. The Chinese have always had a rivalry with Tibet because they think they own the land, even though the Tibetans disagree. This movie shows the rich history behind the silly laugh of the Dali Lama. The Dali Lama will tolerate no violence in his name and just wishes to remain in a remote area, where everything concentrates on spiritual practice. Rick Ray asks the Dali Lama only 10 questions and discovers why the Dali Lama deserved the famous Noble Peace Prize.
While watching this movie, I enjoyed the marvelous quality of the facts about the 14 Dali Lamas, and the war between the Chinese and Tibet. I definitely understand the point of the war now, and also hold a grudge against China. Even though some of Tibet's traditions have been taken out, it was very interesting to watch the ones that still live on to this day. Although the content was very rich, I found the filming quality of the movie, especially in the interview, was very poor and not professional. The sound quality was also not very good, and some scenes in the movie were quite dull. Overall, it was very informative and would recommend it for anyone wanting to learn about Tibet's History and the Dali Lama.
