Filming with The Gyalwang Drukpa
Triple8Films helps make a documentary for German television.
Film maker Alexander Rauscher used the services of Triple8Films on his latest project when his documentary on the KungFu monks of the Himalayas required additional filming in Hong Kong.
This is the second time that we have collaborated.
The Gyalwang Drukpa is an active environmentalist, educator and the spiritual head of the Drukpa Lineage, one of the main Buddhist schools of the Himalayas founded by the great Indian saint Naropa (1016–1100CE).
He applies ancient Buddhist philosophy to resolve today’s problems and has millions of followers worldwide.
One of the Gyalwang Drukpa’s main focuses is on environmental preservation and education, which puts into action the core Buddhist principle that all beings are interconnected and interdependent.
His mission is to promote universal harmony and inner peace by integrating the spiritual tenets of love and appreciation into daily life. His work also includes encouraging gender equality, establishing educational institutions, medical clinics and meditation centres and rebuilding heritage sites in the Himalayas.
