The Great Transmission (USA 2015)

What does it take to keep ancient knowledge alive? Tibetan culture has deep roots, but the turmoil of the 20th century has left its vast text tradition in jeopardy.   This is a story of an historic act of cultural preservation, chronicling one refugee lama's lifelong efforts to preserve, print and return to his people, the sacred books that are their precious heritage.   His work unfolds against the backdrop of a centuries-long transmission, across continents and generations, upholding a legacy of transformative knowledge that dates back to the time of the Buddha.
