Not In God’s Name – In Search of Tolerance with The Dalai Lama – now on DVD

January 26, 2010

Currently, religious fanaticism is on the rise worldwide. Director Paula Fouce ventures into the madrassas, religious schools, and meets moderate Muslims as well as hard-liners. NOT IN GOD’S NAME traces the three reasons for religious extremism. The solutions to hatred in the name of God are laid out by His Holiness Dalai Lama.

Trapped in religious riots in Delhi, filmmaker Paula Fouce follows the Dalai Lama on a journey to understand religious intolerance. NOT IN GOD’S NAME shows how the world is ravaged by extreme divisions between religions. We examine the similar values of all faiths, and their potential for drawing us together to share a common ground. Featuring Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, Robert Thurman Ph. D., Joseph Prabhu Ph. D., Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji, Dr. Karan Singh, Ph. D., Georg Feuerstein, Ph. D., Michael Bernard Beckwith, and leaders of many faiths.

Paula Fouce is completing SONG OF THE DUNES. The crew was amazed to
find the caste system alive and well in 2008, although it was outlawed
in 1947. The film is an amazing tribute to the Untouchable musicians of
Rajasthan. Their spirit is kept alive through music.

More details about the film can be found at www.songofthedunes.com.

Spirituality in 2008

Dr. Modi, president of Maha Bodhi society, asks for Indian citizenship for the Dalai Lama who agreed to become an Indian citizen. If the Dalai Lama gets citizenship, it would end the conflict on the Tibet issue, says Dr. Modi. http://northernlines.in/2008/04/17/dr-bk-modi-demands-indian-citizenship-for-the-dalai-lama/

Khen Rinpoche

April 26, 2008

Khen Rinpoche, the Abbot of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery in South India, has been staying with us for some days. When he came one rose bush which had no blooms, immediately got two perfect maroon colored roses that blossomed. As Rinpoche walked about the yard watering the grass, the birds would come and sit right where he had watered. It was quite precious to see this. His monastery is the seat of the Panchen Lama in exile, who the Chinese Government kidnapped about 15 years ago. The Panchen Lama has not been heard from since and no one knows if he is even alive.
