I'm a little hesitant to note this, but Leslie Ann Patton's excellent (IMO) film about Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, the playfully titled "Words of my Perfect Teacher" is available now at Youtube. I do expect it to be taken down any minute though. If you like it please buy a copy for yourself or friends.

This version has been badly subtitled partially in very bad English and partially in Chinese. So just ignore the English subtitles.

Good film, and Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche is a no-nonsense straight shooter.

Hahah, I have great respect for DKR, and his own films.. but I find the aesthetics of this documentary about him a bit hard to bear. . this fault lies completely with the filmmaker and doesn't reflect on him at all..if there is a fault.. It may just be my aesthetic snobbery.. the music, in particular I find difficult.. However, I am glad it was made and exists, and I can appreciate the content nonetheless...
