The Mystic Fire Video Collection: Tantra of Gyuto: Sacred Rituals of Tibet (1974)
Monks of the Gyuto Tantric College perform sacred Tibetan Buddhist ceremonies in a style of chanting that expresses the ecstasy of true meditation. Through ritual and mantric power and by their sheer inherent potency and disciplined execution, these concentrated essential energies bring about direct spiritual phenomena.
This documentary features a 1974 London public performance of tantric rituals by a group of monks from the Gyuto monastery. The filmmakers followed the monks from their monastery, to their journey to London and the performance. The rituals, introduced by the Dalai Lama, are interwoven with powerful images of Tibetan sacred art.
