"Gyalsey: The Legacy of a Prince" by Jamyang Jamtsho Wangchuk (2012)

4.10.2019, 19:30

Songtsen House, New address: Gubelhangstr. 7, Zürich-Oerlikon (close to Oerlikon train station)


Together with Songtsen House, the Society Switzerland-Bhutan is showing the film "Gyalsey: The Legacy of a Prince" by Jamyang Jamtsho Wangchuk (2012). Bhutan is the last kingdom where Vajrayana Buddhism is practiced. Central in it are Bodhisattvas, whose striving for their own enlightenment is closely connected with the desire to help all other living beings on their way.

The essence of the Bodhisattva vow is skilfully woven into the modern, increasingly dramatic love story of Jamyang and Sangay. Providence and personal destiny play an important role.

Duration: 102 min., original language with English subtitles

Afterwards, we look forward to inviting you to an aperitif.

Admission: Fr. 15.-
