Film – Nurturing Compassion: Journey of the 17th Karmapa @ Tibetan Museum
May 12 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Please join us for a screening of Nurturing Compassion: Journey of the 17th Karmapa, a film by Mark Elliot, acclaimed director of The Lion’s Roar and Yangsi.

Nurturing Compassion portrays the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, leader of the Kagyu Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, and his tour of Germany in 2014, his first ever visit to Europe. Following in the footsteps of his previous incarnation, recognized as one of the 20th Century’s great saints, the Karmapa faces major challenges. Illustrated by archival footage, the film and the Karmapa himself – give an account of his happy early childhood in Tibet, before his recognition and subsequent daring midwinter escape into India.

His message is clear, “We all have to change” if future generations are to survive and flourish. Produced by Mark Elliot, Douglas Beachwood, Babeth M. VanLoo, and Executive Producer Ringu Tulku, Nurturing compassion presents an intimate, candid and often humorous picture of this charismatic and deeply compassionate young lama. His unconditional commitment to the welfare of all beings shines through.
