VAJRA SKY Over Tibet


Journey into Buddhism: Vajra Sky Over Tibet Take an illuminating journey through Tibet with filmmaker John Bush's visually stunning exploration of the country and its colorful culture. Showcasing Tibet's majestic mountains and rushing streams, this compelling documentary -- the final chapter of Bush's Yatra Trilogy -- also visits spiritual venues and chronicles how Tibetans have fought to retain their culture and traditions amid China's systematic efforts to eradicate them.

The Buddhist community in Tibet forms the focus for this documentary, which eschews interview footage and instead relies on moving pictures and a soundtrack by local musicians to tell its tale.

Vajra is the Sanskrit word signifying the thunderbolt of illumination, and yatra is the word for pilgrimage or spiritual journey. This enthralling documentary offers a cinematic pilgrimage to central Tibet, bearing witness to the indomitable faith of its endangered Buddhist community and the imminent threat to its very survival.

I me mine



All thru' the day I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.
All thru' the night I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.
Now they're frightened of leaving it
Ev'ryone's weaving it,
Coming on strong all the time,
All thru' the day I me mine.

I-I-me-me mine,
I-I-me-me mine,
I-I-me-me mine,
I-I-me-me mine.

All I can hear I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.
Even those tears I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.
No-one's frightened of playing it
Ev'ryone's saying it,
Flowing more freely than wine,
All thru' the day, I me mine.

I-I-me-me mine,
I-I-me-me mine,
I-I-me-me mine,
I-I-me-me mine.

All I can hear I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.
Even those tears I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.
No-one's frightened of playing it
Ev'ryone's saying it,
Flowing more freely than wine,
All thru' your life I me mine.
