The Enlightenment

Kalachakra – the Enlightenment

Thousands of prayer flags float in the wind.

Lying on the grass, a woman’s voice tells her suffering after the loss of her sister when she still was a child.

In Dharamsala (Northern india), she befriends three tibetans sharing the same need to liberate themselves and reach knowledge – Peace.

Through their confidences, they lead us to the heart of one of the most powerful and mysterious rituals on earth : Kalachakra.

The dialog she holds with the tibetan Masters and the Dalaï Lama allows us to accompany her on a path to inner peace in which she creates a magical bridge, true and simple, between the Occident and the Orient.
This film pays homage to finding inner peace and a way to achieve peace in the world.
