Overview

Yatra is the Sanskrit word for pilgrimage or spiritual journey. These visually stunning documentaries are cinematic pilgrimages to legendary places in Southeast Asia and Tibet, including the spiritual wonders of Laos, Thailand, Burma, Bali, Cambodia, Java, and Central Tibet. Journey into the living traditions and lost civilizations of this vibrant part of the world and explore the universal ideals of wisdom, compassion, and inner peace at the very heart of these ancient Buddhist cultures. The living presence of place is the primary focus of these three lyrical films which are meditations themselves. Their deliberate pacing, unobtrusive narration, indigenous music, and harmonic chants are designed to induce an inner journey while traveling to these legendary places. Viewers are invited to relax and let the experience wash over them, making the trilogy part of their own journey. The Journey into Buddhism set includes three films: Dharma River, Prajna Earth, and Vajra Sky over Tibet. DVD bonus features: two viewing options: surround sound mix with narration, and ambient sound mix with music * bonus video: Vajra Realm, a dance pilgrimage by Nadine Helstroffer * printable director's notes * 5.1 channel Dolby surround sound...

    Journey into Buddhism

    It is hard to believe all this is going on everyday on the same planet i am living on. I am not a buddhist and this matters not at all. Even though these places are totally exotic they still feel familiar. I love David Hykes and his music is all through the 3 dvds. Makes me want to book a flight to Bali.

    Journey into Buddhism

    If you ever have plans to go to SE Asia or Tibet you must see these dvds. If you are not going, you now have a chance to go as deeply into these spiritual cultures as one could ever hope for sitting still. Transforming, transfixing, totally hypnotic. The visuals are astonishing and the music is rare and trance inducing. I am now watching them in the narration free version also included on the dvd. It plays in the background. Relaxing.

    An astonishing journey to timeless SE Asia & Tibet

    I was amazed at the depth and beauty of this set. The filmmaker travels to Thailand, Laos, Burma, Cambodia, Bali, java & Tibet visting the sacred sites and the local culture. There is incredible art, architecture and luminous faces of people all along the way. We see deeply beautiful landscapes and the hypnotic music of each place. I have been to some of these places and never realized how truly special they were. This journey really delivers.
