In this series, Repa Dorje Odzer (Justin von Bujdoss), a Buddhist teacher and Chief Staff Chaplain for New York City’s Department of Correction, presents advice from the 10th-century Buddhist master Tilopa.

Bonnie Duran, a professor of public health and a cofounder of the People of Color Sangha in Albuquerque and Seattle, will discuss the timeless Vipallasa Sutta, which contains one of the primary teachings the Buddha gave about undoing distortions of the mind, so we can start to remedy the flawed ways we see ourselves and one another.

In Between Mountains and Oceans (Umi Yama Aida)

Every 20 years, locals tear down Ise Jingu, one of the most important Shinto shrine complexes in Mie Prefecture, Japan, only to rebuild it entirely from scratch. Acclaimed Japanese photographer Masaaki Miyazawa explores this 1,300-year-old ritual in his debut feature. Miyazawa takes viewers on a meditative journey through Japan’s cypress forests, mountains, and coasts, where coexisting with the natural world is part of enduring Buddhist environmentalism.
