Bodhisattva captures the long-awaited first visit to the United States of Ogyen Trinley Dorje, the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, one of the most important lamas in the world of Tibetan Buddhism. In this documentary, we meet a young man of extraordinary warmth, humanity and charisma as he speaks to packed auditoriums and delights in encountering this new world. The youthful Karmapa's concern for the social and environmental problems facing humanity today, along with his candor about his own spiritual journey, make Bodhisattva a stirring portrait of the challenges and importance of spiritual leadership in the modern world.
In Bodhisattva, director Mark Elliott continues his intimate coverage of the Karmapa Lineage and its relationship to the West, which began with his 'Lion's Roar', considered a spiritual classic.
