    Room: Main Shrine Room

    This 2003 documentary film, Words of My Perfect Teacher, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche and 3 hapless students is an engaging, provocative and funny, but serious film about the modern and traditional teacher/student relationship in Vajrayana Buddhism. It features one of the most outspoken Tibetan teachers, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche and his "3 hapless students" who made the film. Also appearing are Bernardo Bertolucci, Gesar Mukpo and Steven Seagal. 

    Dzongsar Rinpoche is a filmmaker in his own right and also an avid soccer fan, as humorously depicted in the film. Filming takes place in London, Germany and Bhutan accompanied by a wonderful soundtrack.

    We'll show the film at the St. Johnsbury Center and then have refreshments and a discussion.

    Free and open to the public.
