Dharma River: Journey of a Thousand Buddhas
Dharma River and Prajna Earth are the first two films in The Yatra Trilogy from director John Bush. The series explores the great cultural and religious treasures of SE Asia, journeying to ancient temples, mystical landscapes and wondrous shrines -- many of them UNESCO world heritage sites. Dharma River, the first film in the series, was shot entirely on location in Thailand, Laos, and Burma. Coursing over the canals of Bangkok, the film first travels to the revered Emerald Buddha, and then heads north, to the gilded temples and hill tribes of Chiang Mai. Following the fabled Mekong River, viewers enter mythic buddha caves and visit a sacred Shangri-La city, then journey on to the holy pagodas of Burma and the dreamscape of Pagan. The film concludes with a radiant passage down the Irawadday River. Prajma Earth, the second film in the cycle explores the lost spiritual civilization of Angkor in Cambodia, including the magnificent Angkor Wat, the largest temple in the world. Voyaging on to sacred nature sites in Bali and Java -- including scenes of trance dancing in the jungles of Java -- viewers finally climb the seven level mandala wonder of Buddhist Borobudur. $25.00

Wheel of Time
Werner Herzog
Werner Herzog's gorgeously photographed look at the largest Buddhist ritual in Bodh Gaya, India. It is said that Buddha found enlightenment under a tree in Bodh Gaya and today, Buddhist monks are ordained in this holy place. Herzog magically captures the lengthy pilgrimage (which for some, is over 3,000 miles), the monk's creation of the beautiful and intricate sand mandala (the wheel of time) along with many secret rituals that have never been seen before on film. He delivers a personal and introspective look at what Buddhism really means to its most ardent followers, as well as giving outsiders an intimate look into a fascinating way of life.

Prajna Earth: Journey into Sacred Nature
John Bush

"I first journeyed to Asia in 1970. There I found that even in a time of war and tumult, practices for inner peace and social harmony were alive in Buddhist teachings. This understanding has informed my work ever since. In making THE YATRA TRILOGY, I wanted to create a new kind of viewing experience that would allow someone to have a direct encounter with the sacred spaces of southeast Asia. They have their own presence, and I wanted them to speak for themselves. This timeless art and architecture is part of the world's cultural heritage. It's important to archive these things, to share them." Director John Bush $24.95
