Dalai Lama - Walking the Path of Peace

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 DVD features exclusive coverage of the Dalai Lama’s historic three-day visit to Northern Ireland including his official welcome by Rt. Hon Peter Mandelson, Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, intimate moments during a meeting with victims of violence and local peacemakers, greeting schoolchildren and local residents in west Belfast, including his historic opening of the gate separating Catholic and Protestant areas. We also see the Dalai Lama lighting a candle for peace in a community centre, hear him say prayers alongside Father Gerry Reynolds and Reverend Barry Dodds at an interfaith service on the Peace Line, and see the lively crowd at a public rally cheering the Man of Peace in Belfast. The programme is approximately 50 minutes in length and is presented in English. This DVD is the latest release in a series of ongoing reissues 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.
