Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche  (c. 1910 — 28 September 1991) was a Vajrayana master, scholar, poet, teacher, and head of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism from 1987 to 1991. Two of his admirers are Richard Gere and Lou Reed, who provide the narration for his dangerous journey out of China and the subsequent spread of his influence around the world.

As the primary custodian of the teachings of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, Dilgo Khyentse was the de facto custodian of the vast majority of Tibetan Buddhist teachings. After the Chinese invasion of Tibet, his personal effort was crucial in the preservation of Tibetan Buddhism.

Known as the teacher of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Royal Family of Bhutan, his life and teachings were an inspiration to all who encountered him.Written and Directed by Neten Chokling (Milarepa), one of Khyentse Rinpoche his students, it is an intimate, moving and revelatory look at a transcendent spiritual being.

Tibet – Cry of the Snow Lion

Tibet was invaded, pillared, raped, destroyed. Tibet had no armies, no weapons, no tanks; yet their monasteries were robbed, priceless historical and religious scriptures were burned, monks tortured, and nuns raped before being horribly murdered. Tibetans were forced not to meditate, but to work in the fields. Under loaded machine guns, meditators were being forced to work in labor camps and wear the typical Chinese peasant uniforms so that all their uniqueness and individuality would be destroyed. In addition, the Tibetan language is deliberately being destroyed; children are forced to learn and speak Chinese. It is a tragedy that Tibet fell into the hands of materialists who believe people are only matter and that consciousness is only a by-product of matter. Communists are not interested in meditation and they even deny the existence of the inner sphere.
