Padmasambhava, also known as Guru Rinpoche (“Precious Guru”), has been revered for centuries in the Himalayan regions as the second Buddha. Based on research into ancient Buddhist manuscripts, Precious Guru: Journey into the Wild Heart of the Second Buddha traces the spiritual life and legacy of this 8th-century tantric master—and relates some of the wild adventures he is said to have gone on. The film features the voices of contemporary teachers and practitioners including Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, Lama Tsultrim Allione, and Robert Thurman.
