Life Past of a Buddhist Nun

9 mins2016

Why did a Scottish woman called Gabriel McQuire, who had a professional career, a beautiful home and an intimate relationship give it all up to become a celibate Buddhist nun? She changed her religion, life and name. Now known as Kelsang Machig, this is a story of remarkable transformation.

We follow Machig’s journey of leaving her material world behind. She turns down the gift of a luxury apartment in Venice and a life of decadence married to a business entrepreneur. Instead she chooses a humble life of a nun free from possessions.

A moving story of resisting temptations and following your dreams.
