In the 1980's, at the request of His Holiness the Dalai Lama the Meridian Trust began to film many of the old teachers who came out of Tibet before they passed away. This original filming initiative came to be known as the Lama Project; a total of 600 hours of unique footage was recorded. His Holiness the Dalai Lama is considered to be a living embodiment of Avalokiteshvara or Chenrezig, who is the Buddha of Compassion. Thus this is a very special initiation from His Holiness. There are no special requirements or commitments involved as this was given to a large public audience, but is a blessing that can benefit everyone. These films will form part of a unique and groundbreaking series of films that will be welcomed the world over not only by those interested in Buddhism but fellow travellers on the road to enlightenment.
