Social Justice and Buddhism in the 21st Century Presents: "Wheel of Time"

Published Kayla Coleman - Tue, 05/03/2016 - 1:41am

 

Written and directed by critically acclaimed filmmaker Werner Herzog, "Wheel of Time" documents the Kalachakra, the 12-day ritual for ordaining Tibetan Buddhist monks. Herzog follows the pilgrimage first to Bodh Gaya, India and then to Mount Kailash.

"Herzog's engrossing documentary is a spiritual blessing for Buddhists and anyone else fortunate to experience it. There are several brief interviews with the Dalai Lama where he demonstrates his knowledge of Buddhist tradition and his hopes that all religions will practice love, kindness, and compassion in a world split apart by hatred, war, and misunderstandings." - Spirituality & Practice
