H.H. The Dalai Lama - The Power of Compassion

The Meridian Trust is a charity dedicated to preserving Buddhist culture on film and video. The archive holds over 2,500 hours of footage, focusing primarily on the endangered traditions of Tibet. Our archival footage is available to film and documentary makers, as well as Buddhist students and other interested people. Meridian Trust produces and makes available DVD and video programmes of all the major Buddhist traditions through our worldwide distribution network. Mainly focusing on teachings and public talks given by leading Buddhist teachers, especially the Dalai Lama, our patron, we also distribute documentaries and feature films concerned with Buddhist issues.

In the 1980s, at the request of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the Meridian Trust began to film many of the old teachers who came out of Tibet, before they passed away. This original filming initiative came to be known as the Lama Project; a total of 600 hours of unique footage was recorded.

This programme is approximately 165 minutes in length and H.H. the Dalai Lama begins this programme by encouraging us to forget the differences of religion, culture and so forth, and focus on how we are all the same human beings. In this way we develop compassion and get along together well. The key to a happy life is our own mental attitude. Compassionate people are happier, calmer and healthier, and they create a pleasant atmosphere in the family and community.

The programme is presented mostly in English. This DVD is the latest release in a series of ongoing re-issues that bring the work of the Dalai Lama to a wider audience. These films will form part of a unique and groundbreaking series of films that will be welcomed the world over not only by those interested in Buddhism but fellow travellers on the road to enlightenment.
