The buxa lama

Inspirational journey of 1500 monks of Buxa, the first Tibetan refugee camp in India, built on the grounds of a jungle-bound former prison. Life there was difficult for these monks, who after being forced out of their homes, now were faced with the challenge of adapting to different weather conditions, food habits and unknown bacteria that the jungle harbored. Many monks did not survive these conditions, yet many more stayed determined and held out hope for a prompt return to Tibet which kept them going. And they eventually went out to start the 3 largest Tibetan Buddhist monastic education centers in India serving close 17000 monks today.

Geleck Palsang was a director who meticulously thought about the look of every frame of his movies.
