Exploring the Spiritual Side of Tibet

The film above takes you inside the spir­i­tu­al walls of Lhasa, Tibet’s cap­i­tal, which hosts the Pota­la Palace, “the tra­di­tion­al win­ter home of the Dalai Lama and a pil­grim­age des­ti­na­tion for thou­sands of Bud­dhists.” The video runs 9+ min­utes, and it’s one of many films pro­duced by Explore.org, a web site sup­port­ed by the Annen­berg Foun­da­tion that com­bines phil­an­thropy, trav­el, and learn­ing. Offer­ing glob­al cov­er­age, Explore.org also brings you to Africa, India, the Mid­dle East, Cos­ta Rica and beyond. You can find their full col­lec­tion of films here, and they have also been added to our col­lec­tion: Intel­li­gent Video: The Top Cul­tur­al & Edu­ca­tion­al Video Sites. Enjoy.
