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 United States (and the West). In this hour-long documentary, this young man of extraordinary warmth, humanity, humor, and charisma speaks to packed auditoriums and delights in encountering this new world. As a sequel to Mark Elliot’s earlier The Lions’ Roar (1987), a documentary about the previous Karmapa’s first trip to the West, Bodhisattva continues to chronicle the life of this significant spiritual figure and his role in the transmission of Buddhism to the West.
