A Ritual Journey Around Bon Sacredness in Dolpo

This DVD is a non-profit project that originated with the intent to present the first ever integral account of the ritual pilgrimage of the Chöd to a wider audience. The images have been generously given by the population of the remote area of Southern Dolpo in Nepal. The words of Professor Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche and other eminent teachers of the Tibetan bon tradition give this film a fascinating and previously unpublished view of the symbolic and spiritual Universes that are remote in appearance only…

The funds collected through the distribution and promotion of this DVD will be given to Asia Onlus, Shang Shung Institute and Tapriza NGO.

Asia Onlus promotes cultural, social, economical and health development in the Asian Continent, specifically with people whose ethnic and cultural survival is endangered in the Himalayan countries.

The Shang Shung Institute is a non-profit, non political organisation devoted to the preservation and study of the Tibetan culture.

Tapriza Verein NGO operates directly in the remote region of Southern Dolpo and focuses on the preservation of the culture, health and education services.

The film makers are deeply thankful to the Masters, the Chopa, the inhabitants of the Dolpo region for their precious contributions together with all the colleagues and friends who have directly or indirectly helped and supported this project. 

With profound gratitude: Riccardo Vrech & Manuela Cutolo
