WHEN THE IRON BIRD FLIES takes us on an up-close and personal journey, exploring the complex interactions between contemporary Tibetan Buddhism and western culture. The film goes in-depth to portray the experiences and insights of both teachers and practitioners in the US and around the world. Along the way, it illuminates the wide ranging dialogs taking place between Buddhist teachings and science, psychology, gender theory and the arts. The film creates a vivid and entertaining portrait of the world of Tibetan Buddhism, as it is manifesting in the West and asks the vital question - 'In these increasingly chaotic modern times, can these age old teachings help us to find genuine happiness and create a saner, more compassionate 21st century world?'Written by
This documentary explains Buddhism in very simplistic terms and follows the stories of a diverse group of practitioners. It would be great for beginners or experienced practitioners or anybody curious about Buddhism.
It really explains the four noble truths in an easy to understand manner.
I took away the acronym POSH from this documentary.
Perceptions are inaccurate. Ordinary thinking leads to suffering. Subtle discontentment is part of everyday life. Happiness is letting go of attachment to our ego.
