This month we are offering supporting and sustaining members a look at the documentary film Brilliant Moon: Glimpses of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. Brilliant Moon chronicles the life of the poet, writer, and meditation master Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, one of Tibet’s most loved and respected 20th-century Buddhist teachers. Written and directed by Neten Chokling and narrated by Richard Gere and Lou Reed, Brilliant Moon was filmed in Tibet, India, Bhutan, the United States, and Nepal. The film uses animation, unseen archival footage, photographs, and interviews with Tibetan Buddhist teachers—His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, Matthieu Ricard, Orgyen Topgyal Rinpoche, Rabjam Rinpoche, and Sogyal Rinpocheto—to tell Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche’s life story.

Brilliant Moon will only be available to watch on Tricycle until the end of September. To purchase a copy of the DVD or download the movie, please visit Alive Mind Cinema here.
