EARTH SUTRA
 A film by Jordi Carot & Jose Sáenz de Heredia, 84 mins/English
 
 
Earth Sutra is an 8 year film project that portrays the survival of Tibet and it's culture in exile. A reflection about how Tibetan culture and values can help the world to face the global crisis in the XXI 'st century. 
 
Throughout history, Tibet, as a people and a culture, has focused much of its efforts on the search for individuals who can develop themselves as Bodhisattvas, beings engaged in the pursuit of supreme enlightenment. An ideal of life whose main objective is to reduce suffering, bothfrom themselves and from the others, aspiring to a universal liberation. Thich Nhat Hanh, Vietnamese Buddhist monk, says that “Mother Earth is the most beautiful Bodhisattva”. As inhabitants of our planet we must find waysto preserve and ensure its future and thus develop ourselves as conscious and interrelated beings with their environment.
