Message from Director and Co-producer Jennifer Fox:
Dear Vajra Brothers and Sisters,
I am here to report that we have raised $16,728 towards the extended PR and Outreach Campaign for the MY REINCARNATION US Public Television Broadcast in June 2012. To all of you out there who have donated or helped, thank you for your support and encouragement.
As a token of our gratitude, we have just edited this new Outtake From the Film #7 (O.F.F.), "What Does Mandala Mean?" (1989). Here Rinpoche explores the library at the University of Naples, where he teaches. He uncovers an old Buddhist text and explains the meaning of the word, Mandala, in Tibetan Buddhism. Enjoy!

MY REINCARNATION is auspiciously airing right before Rinpoche begins his USA Teaching Tour in June 2012. Rinpoche will be able to do interviews directly if we can organize the press in a way that is not taxing to his health or his schedule. It would be a horrible missed opportunity if the American Press did not get a chance to interview Chögyal Namkhai Norbu directly – one of the last living Tibet-Trained Buddhist Masters in the West. How amazing it would be to have Rinpoche speak on American TV and Radio!
But the clock is ticking! We still have a little more than $33,000 to raise to achieve our minimum goal! Here are some of the ways you can help support the Outreach and PR for the US Television Premiere of MY REINCARNATION: (Please note if you have any problem with any links – you can find everything on our website at http://www.myreincarnationfiilm.com
