In 1991, Mickey Lemle first introduced the wider world to the Dalai Lama through his documentary “Compassion in Exile: The Story of the 14th Dalai Lama.” Now, as Tenzin Gyatso enters his 8th decade, Mickey revisits his friend to examine the then and now for the Tibetan people and how the science of brain-mind-consciousness fits well within Buddhist psychology.
Will he be the last Dalai Lama? As a refugee in Dharamsala, India, he has stated if and when Tibet is free, he would step down as a leader to become a simple Buddhist monk. His Holiness has also said publicly that he will not reincarnate, given that the Chinese government wants to have a say in finding the “unmistaken child” who would become the 15th Dalai Lama.
“The Last Dalai Lama?” gives a rare and intimate look at one of the most beloved sentient beings the world has ever known, with appearances by Philip Glass, former President George W. Bush, and many more. –Cynthia KaneRead more »
