The Last Dalai Lama?
Showtimes: (11:45 am Sat & Sun) 2:00; 4:30; 7:00; 9:10
For over a thousand years, Tibetan Buddhist psychology has taught techniques for overcoming negative, afflictive emotions, such as anger, greed, jealousy, sloth and ignorance. In the film THE LAST DALAI LAMA?, His Holiness explains that Tibetan Buddhism is both a religion and a "science of the mind"; he also shares his crystallized understanding of the nature of mind, and its part in the creation and alleviation of all of our suffering. His urgency and dedication come through in THE LAST DALAI LAMA? as he now turns 82, and must deal with the questions of aging and death, and whether he will reincarnate as The Dalai Lama, or if he will be the last of the lineage that has existed for a millennia.
