Dalai Lama - Towards a Peaceful World
This is my description text 1. It can support html.

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 highlights of H.H. the Dalai Lama’s UK 99 Visit. This programme captures the excitement and the huge crowds that gathered when the Dalai Lama visited the U.K. in May 1999. Highlights include excerpts from ‘Lo-jong – Transforming the Mind’ teachings at Wembley Conference Centre and the ‘Ethics for the New Millennium’ talk at the royal Albert Hall. Also included are excerpts from the 10th Lambeth Interfaith Lecture given by the Dalai Lama at Lambeth Palace, extracts from the press conference at Westminster, the opening of the Peace Garden in Lambeth and a visit to Jamyang Buddhist Centre. The programme is approximately 56 minutes long 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.
