    • Synopsis
    • I was eight: my sister had passed away. For a long time, I left this wound buried deep inside me. But every now and then, it would reappear, and crush me. I had to find peace.
      I had long been dreaming to attend the Kalachakra ceremony, which gathers pilgrims for all over the world. Given by the Dalai Lama, it’s the highest Buddhist initiation which leads to enlightenment.
      This time, my decision was made. I would go to Bodhgaya to find answers there.
      Thanks to my friends Jampa, Tenzin and Kehtsun, who aspire like I do to spiritual awakening and peace, I was introduced to the greatest masters of Tibetan Buddhism, and was even granted an exceptional meeting with His Holiness the Dalai Lama. They all responded to my questions with simplicity and humour.

      Through this film, we enter and discover an ancient yet unknown dimension where death meets life, a dimension which changes someone forever.
