The Spirit of Tibet:
The Life And World of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche


Narrated by Richard Gere and featuring an exclusive interview with His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama
Director: Matthieu Ricard
Music Director: Philip Glass
Written by: Rudy Wurlitzer and Matthieu Ricard

The Spirit of Tibet is an intimate glimpse into the life and world of one of Tibet's most revered 20th-century teachers: Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. A writer, poet and meditation master, Khyentse Rinpoche was an inspiration to all who encountered him. His many students throughout the world included the Dalai Lama and the King of Bhutan.

Filled with dazzling footage of rarely photographed parts of Tibet, Bhutan and Nepal and narrated by Richard Gere, this unique tribute to Rinpoche's life and work tells his story from birth to death to rebirth - from his escape following China's invasion of Tibet, to his determination to preserve and transmit Buddhist teachings far and wide. His life leads us on a journey revealing the wonders of Tibet's art, ritual, philosophy and sacred dance.

Exclusive footage of the Dalai Lama shows a different aspect of the Nobel Peace Prize winner as he speaks candidly of his own spiritual life. The film is co-produced by Shechen and offers wonderful images of Shechen Monastery and the life of the monks there.

Director Matthieu Ricard, noted French photographer, Buddhist monk and best-selling author, traveled for over 14 years with Khyentse Rinpoche.

Tibetan Text Manuscript Preservation

Shechen Monastery was founded in 1735 in the province of Kham in Eastern Tibet. It rapidly became one of the six principal monasteries of the Nyingma, or "Ancient", tradition, which maintains the form of Buddhism originally introduced into Tibet. Following the Chinese communist invasion of Tibet in 1957, more than six thousand monasteries and libraries were completely destroyed.

In exile, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche (1910-1991), constructed a branch of Shechen Monastery in Nepal, in order to maintain the philosophical, contemplative, and artistic traditions for which the mother monastery had been so famous. Khyentse Rinpoche’s lifetime saw Tibet’s unique heritage threatened from the outside by the upheavals of the Cultural Revolution. Innumerable books in countless monastery libraries were systematically destroyed and the few of the lamas and scholars who fled into exile managed to bring their precious books with them on the hurried and hazardous journey out of Tibet. In many cases, nevertheless, the texts survived, even if only in one or very few copies. Gradually gathering momentum over two decades, as the funds and manpower became available the huge task of re-publishing almost the whole of Tibetan literature began.

Khyentse Rinpoche worked tirelessly to teach, preserve and republish all the major texts on philosophy and meditation. Khyentse Rinpoche through Shechen Publications in India has published over three hundred volumes of texts, some of which were unique copies. More than 12,000 Tibetan texts have been printed and put at the disposition of monasteries, universities and study centers. Numerous copies have been sent to Tibet where they hopefully will constitute one of the main elements in a greatly hoped for renaissance. Shechen Publications is now also publishing books in English, which are distributed throughout India, Nepal and Bhutan.

Since 1989 a team of monks at Shechen Monastery in Nepal, working under the inspiration of Khyentse Rinpoche's grandson and present abbot, Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche has begun inputting into computer the major texts of the Nyingma tradition. The texts are entered using a Tibetan font and can be printed out in the form of traditional folios. These monks have trained and perfected their skills at word processing using the Tibetan program.

The first and foremost work of this team was to decipher, edit, input and check Khyentse Rinpoche's own writings that filled 25 volumes. This major task was completed a number of years ago and is for sale through the Monastery. This same team is continuing its work by inputting rare manuscripts, or xylographic prints, and major texts that are essential for the preservation of the scriptural tradition.

This work can be summarized into five sections as listed below:

1. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche's lifetime of teachings and writings. These Collected Writings comprise twenty-five volumes of biographies, poems, meditation instructions, and commentaries.

2. The main commentaries for the philosophical studies and contemplative practice of the Nyingma tradition. We plan to offer camera-ready copies of these texts to publishers in Tibet who are struggling to help monasteries and learning centers reconstruct their libraries.

3. A collection of rare manuscripts preserved in Khyentse Rinpoche's library.

4. The specific texts required for the curriculum of the philosophical colleges (Shedras) for advanced Buddhist studies of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism. This collection, pertaining to both the sutra and the tantra traditions, will begin with twenty-five volumes.

5. The Collected Works of zhabs dkar thsogs drug rang grol in 14 Volumes, the printing of which has been completed in June 2003.

Among these works the following collections have recently been printed in Delhi with the support of the Tsadra Foundation:

1) gdams ngag rin po che mdzod in 16volumes. The collection of precious instructions from the Eight Charriots of Spiritual Accomplishment, collected by Jamgon Kongtrul.
2) rgya chen bka’ mdzod . The expanded, complete edition of Jamgon Kongtrul Yonten Gyatso writings in 14 large volumes
3) The Collected Works of zhabs dkar thsogs drug rang grol in 14 Volumes, with a detailed analytical catalogue in English and Tibetan
