Hieronder video's van het Tibetan Aid Project over de World Peace Ceremony in Bodh Gaya, India en de distributie van boeken aan de monniken.


Wellspring of Hope

Tibet once existed as a respository of Buddhist knowledge, but ongoing repression has endangered its unique literary heritage. In Wellspring of Hope, Pema Gellek talks about the rejuvenation of Tibetan culture at the World Peace Ceremony and the ongoing efforts of the Tibetan Aid Project to replace sacred texts.


The World Peace Ceremony in Bodh Gaya, India

This film describes the annual World Peace Ceremony, which takes place at the site of the Buddha's enlightenment in Bodh Gaya, India. The film explains the value of the Tibetan wisdom tradition. Since 1959, the destruction of temples and monasteries in Tibet has resulted in the loss of many great libraries as well as disruption of the transmission of the Dharma from teacher to disciple. Tarthang Tulku founded the Tibetan Aid Project to support the preservation of the Tibetan culture and to return sacred Tibetan texts, especially Mahayana texts like the Prajnaparamita, to the Tibetan people.

Full Circle Wisdom

This video describes the work of Tibetan lama Tarthang Tulku and the Tibetan Aid Project to preserve the teachings of the Buddha following the invasion of Tibet in the 1950's. Tens of thousands of Tibetans fled, crossing the Himalayas to refuge in India, Nepal and Bhutan. The World Peace Ceremony began as a plan to sustain the faith of the refugee Tibetan community by sponsoring a gathering in Bodh Gaya, India, at the site of the Buddha's enlightenment. The book distribution that takes place during this annual event is replenishing Tibetan libraries throughout the Himalayan region.


Libraries of Compassion

A film made in 2007 about the Tibetan Aid Project's work in Bodh Gaya, India. Also chronicles the history of the World Peace Ceremony, founded by Tarthang Tulku.

Preserving the Living Legacy of Tibet

This video illustrates the genesis and development of Buddhism, and Tibetan Buddhism in particular, from 600 BCE to today. It describes the transmission of the Tibetan wisdom tradition through generations of masters and the effort to preserve that tradition post-occupation by Lama Tarthang Tulku through the organizations he founded, the Tibetan Aid Project, Dharma Publishing and the Yeshe De Project.
