Some nine years in the making and now finally arriving with an endorsement from His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Precious Guru: Journey into the Wild Heart of the Second Buddha is an enthralling and inspiring feature-length documentary that marks the culmination of an ambitious journey to trace the spiritual life and legacy of the eighth century tantric master Padmasambhava. Part biographical chronicle, part travelogue, and part sacred teaching, Precious Guru peers through the roiling mists of time and digs through the accreted strata of myth and legend, asking the eternal questions: Who was Padmasambhava? What did he do? Why is he so revered in Vajrayana Buddhism? This enchanted exploration follows Guru Rinpoche’s rich legacy of transformation and transcendence that has literally shaped cultures and landscapes and an entire spiritual tradition, and which still today echoes through the Himalayan peaks and valleys and out into the wider world.
