Blessings: The Tsoknyi Nangchen Nuns of Tibet, An Inspiring Story Narrated by Richard Gere


 
In the summer of 2005, renowned Tibetan Buddhist teacher Tsoknyi Rinpoche III led a group of western women students to Nangchen, a remote nomadic region of eastern Tibet. They journeyed to meet the Tsoknyi Nangchen nuns - 3000 women who practice the ancient yogic traditions initiated in the 1800s by the first Tsoknyi Rinpoche, who envisioned a time when these women would become some of the most accomplished spiritual practitioners in the world. Despite all 40 nunneries being destroyed during China's Cultural Revolution of the 1960s, a handful of survivors of the Tsoknyi Nangchen nuns kept their practices alive and emerged to rebuild their sanctuaries by hand . . . stone by stone. Now, the wisdom tradition of the nuns is once again vital and growing. Blessings is the compelling story of these remarkable female practitioners. Through unforgettable images and words, the film documents their encounter with the western women who come to help, but who leave immeasurably enriched by the nuns' power, compassion and unfailing good humor.
