Product Overview

Yatra is the Sanskrit word for pilgrimage or spiritual journey. These visually stunning documentaries are cinematic pilgrimages to legendary places in Southeast Asia and Tibet, including the spiritual wonders of Laos, Thailand, Burma, Bali, Cambodia, Java, and Central Tibet. Journey into the living traditions and lost civilizations of this vibrant part of the world and explore the universal ideals of wisdom, compassion, and inner peace at the very heart of these ancient Buddhist cultures.

The living presence of place is the primary focus of these three lyrical films which are meditations themselves. Their deliberate pacing, unobtrusive narration, indigenous music, and harmonic chants are designed to induce an inner journey while traveling to these legendary places. Viewers are invited to relax and let the experience wash over them, making the trilogy part of their own journey.

The Journey Into Buddhism set includes three films: Dharma River, Prajna Earth, and Vajra Sky Over Tibet.

Narrated by Sharon Stone, PRAJNA EARTH explores the meeting points of Buddhist and Hindu traditions, from Cambodia's lost Angkor civilization to Java's trance dancers. VAJRA SKY OVER TIBET explores the region's sacred shrines, ancient teachings, and unique--but threatened--culture.
