Gene Smith on Video

I had the good fortune to interview Gene Smith on camera on a couple of different occasions. The first time, in 2005, he gave me background on the Mindrolling lineage from the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism and also illuminated the concept of terma for me. Here is an excerpt from the interview:

Gene Smith on the Mindrolling lineage

In that meeting, I mentioned to him that I was planning a documentary on the life of the Sixteenth Karmapa and of course, he was enormously helpful. I’ve posted one of the extras from the Recalling a Buddha dvd online where Gene provided the bulk of the commentary about “The Line of Karmapas.”

I appreciate the support and generosity he extended so much,
