Film Screening on Kushok Bakula Rinpoche: The Extraordinary Story of an Extraordinary Monk

April 27 2024 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Details on the film – This pioneering documentary film on the Buddhist monk and diplomat Kushok Bakula Rinpoche who played a critical role in the development of modern Ladakh, and, in his role as India’s ambassador to Mongolia for a decade, had a seminal role in reviving Buddhism in Mongolia after the fall of Communism. Kushok Bakula Rinpoche even built a monastery in the heart of Ulaan Baatar in line with his monastery in Ladakh and had numerous followers in the country including heads of states. In his early life Kushok Bakula raised local troops of young Ladakhis to fight invaders from Pakistan after independence, and in Mongolia, he assisted in revealing many atrocities against Buddhism monks during the Communist era. Loved in India by everyone from Jawaharlal Nehru to Indira Gandhi and Atal Bihari Vajpayee, this seminal film details, and is a tribute to, the incredible life of Kushok Bakula Rinpoche.
