[Video] The Yogis of Tibet: A Documentary

Zen Garden

Yogi. An individual who has spent years in isolated retreat practicing secret self-transforming physical and mental exercises, and through these techniques has developed extraordinary control over both mind and body.

This video enlightens us about the history and traditions of the spiritual masters of Tibet.

In a land that was invaded by the Chinese Communists, in the guise of “liberating” the people of Tibet from a supposed feudal and archaic system, the Tibetans have struggled to keep their religion, their culture, their way of life.

Though the Tibetan people (amidst exile) have faced much oppression at the hands of the Chinese, to the point where their people face extinction, not unlike the Jews under Nazi Germany, their religion, philosophy and culture has spread further throughout the world.

This is a great documentary for those interested in the Tibetan people and their plight, and has some great interviews with many of the spiritual masters of Tibet (including His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama).
