BACKGROUND is a 42 minute film I made with Ratnaketu in the style of a pilgrimage to the hermitages and monasteries of Kalimpong, Darjeeling and Sikkim assoiated with Urgyen Sangharakshita, the TBC’s founder, and his principal teachers, Tibetan, Indian and Chinese. A beautiful Himalayan peak, Khangchendzonga, overlooked a resurgence of Buddhism, rather ironically first in the ‘West’ and then the ‘East’.
