Vajra is the Sanskrit word signifying the thunderbolt of illumination, and yatra is the word for pilgrimage or spiritual journey. This enthralling third documentary offers a cinematic pilgrimage to central Tibet, bearing witness to the indomitable faith of its endangered Buddhist community and the imminent threat to its very survival.

Traveling through breathtaking Himalayan terrain, Vajra Sky Over Tibet visits extraordinary temples, monasteries, and festivals. The enduring power of Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism resonates in all of its sacred shrines and echoes within the bustling Jokhang Temple and the empty Potala Palace, home of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Journey into the living traditions of this vanishing civilization and explore the universal ideals of wisdom, compassion, and inner peace at the very heart of this ancient Buddhist culture.

Special DVD Features Include: two viewing options: surround sound mix with narration, and ambient sound mix with music
• bonus video: Vajra Realm, a dance pilgrimage by Nadine Helstroffer
• downloadable director's notes
• 5.1 Channel Dolby Surround Sound
