As part of our film series, Owsley Brown, A Filmmaker's Journey, we are screening The Precious Treasury Autumn 2007: the filmmaker's pilgrimage to the sacred site of Mount Kailash, Tibet, begins in Kathmandu, Nepal, where he observes local traditions and daily life in the city streets. He travels on to Lhasa and the surrounding mountains and high plateaus, documenting visits to the meditation caves of Padmasambhava, who brought Buddhism to Tibet in the eighth century, and those of Longchenpa, the fourteenth-century Dzogchen master. Combining imagery of the everyday with the sublime, The Precious Treasury is a study in contradictions, offered as a meditation "rooted solely in sight and sound."
