Blessings: The Tsoknyi Nangchen Nuns of Tibet tells the story of 3000 nuns living in the remote nomadic region of Nangchen in Eastern Tibet who practice an ancient yogic tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. Despite near extinction during the destruction of the Cultural Revolution, these remarkable spiritual practitioners have emerged to rebuild their monasteries by hand - stone by stone. Now, their tradition of wisdom and compassion is once again vital and growing.
In 2005, Tsoknyi Rinpoche III led a small group of western students to meet the Nangchen nuns. Blessings is the story of this extraordinary journey. A unique meeting of East and West, the film is an inspiration to anyone seeking a spiritual path through the challenges of 21st century life.
