Here’s a short film recently released by Explore.org that was sent to me. The video documents some key aspects of Tibetan history and culture.
Explore.org is a philanthropic project that showcases the extraordinary works of non-profits around the world. Explore.org’s multimedia library consists of short documentary films, world-class photographic galleries, and original interviews with inspirational NGO leaders and local heroes.
This Tibet Special is the result of a fact-finding mission that took place in April 2006. On that visit Explore gave a grant to the Dickey Orphanage, which was used toward building their new home on the road to Drepung Monastery.

Journey with the Explore team to the spiritual city of Lhasa, the capital of Tibet. See Potala Palace, the traditional winter home of the Dalai Lama and a pilgrimage destination for thousands of Buddhists. Listen to the sounds of monks practicing the art of debate at the Sera Monastery, and witness the many ways in which new technologies are changing the Tibetan cultural landscape.
