When The Iron Bird Flies DVD

Our Price: $24.95

Product Code: DXX406


"An intimate, compelling look at how the timeless teachings of contemporary Tibetan Buddhist lamas address the big questions--and doubts--of the contemporary west, seen through the narratives of leading practitioners, scholars, and researchers. The photography is dazzling, the portraits extraordinary, the flow natural and engaging.... This film lifts Tibetan Buddhism out of mere historical exoticism, making it direct and relevant."

Acharya Judith Simmer-Brown, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Contemplative and Religious Studies, Naropa University, author of Dakini's Warm Breath: The Feminine Principle in Tibetan Buddhism.

In 1959, the Chinese invasion of Tibet threw open the doors to the mysterious realm of Tibetan Buddhism and suddenly this rich, ancient tradition was propelled into the modern world.

WHEN THE IRON BIRD FLIES takes us on an up-close and personal journey following the astounding path of one of the world’s great spiritual traditions from the caves of Tibet to the mainstream of Western culture.

Through candid interviews with contemporary teachers and practitioners, rare archival footage, and striking images of modern life that illuminate and make accessible the Buddha’s core teachings, the film creates a vivid and entertaining portrait of the world of Tibetan Buddhism, as it is manifesting in America and the West.
