"In the Minds of All Beings: Tsogyal Latso of Tibet" is a twenty-minute
documentary that takes us to the eighth century birthplace of Khandro Yeshe
Tsogyal, the founding mother of Tibetan Buddhism and the greatest enlightened
woman in Tibet
Filmed during a pilgrimage in 2010, the narrative guides us on a pilgrimage of
our own through the sacred landscape of Tsogyal Latso: a self-arisen visionary
lake, healing springs with winter-blooming flowers and a vigorous life-force
sandalwood tree which dates back to Tsogyal's birth. The film introduces us to a
small community of nuns who arrived there after the Cultural Revolution. They
came to Tsogyal Latso to revitalize and care for this revered place of the
sacred feminine and fulfill their deepest desire for spiritual practice.
In the Minds of All Beings: Tsogyal Latso of Tibet was created to increase
public awareness about Yeshe Tsogyal, her sacred birthplace, and the inspiring
accomplishments of a small community of nuns equipped only with faith. The film
captures the charged and stark beauty of the landscape and the gentle, loving
presence of this spiritual community.
The title leads us to the film's deep spiritual insight: Yeshe Tsogyal's wisdom
is found in the minds of all beings and in the world around us.
