Flames of Bodhichitta (USA, 75 min)
Directed & Produced by Dorjee Tsering (Lhaksam)
Between 2009 and the end of March 2014, 137 Tibetans had self immolated. Many in the world don’t understand why. The Chinese Communist party taught the Tibetan people that there cannot be two suns in the same sky, it either has to be The Chinese Communist party or Tibetan Buddhism. The Tibetans who self-immolated agree. For those living on the plateau there CAN only be one sun in the Tibetan sky and that is His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the values and culture which he embodies.
