Has anybody seen this film? It looks very interesting! Like a spiritual version of Zimbardos "Stanford Prison Experiment".

Here is a two part interview with the director.

There's a Kagyu story about a Lama and his three students. The Lama was kind hearted and knowledgeable but not Enlightened. All his claims of normalcy were ignored by his students as modesty, who practiced seeing him as Enlightened and thus quickly surpassed their teacher and gained Enlightenment. Whereupon they saw their guru as a ordinary human and became his gurus.

-Paraphrase of Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel citing the Guhyasamaja Tantra

"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."

More like Borat or the Love Guru. Konchog1's story was good though.

Geshe Michael Roach in the trailer. And was that... Perry Farrell saying he always wanted to meet an authentic Indian?
