'When the Iron Bird Flies': Documentary Preview

Does the practice of Tibetan Buddhism offer a way out of suffering, a path to compassion in the 21st Century?

That question is at the heart of the documentary When the Iron Bird Flies: Tibetan Buddhism Arrives in the West, a 20-minute preview of which is provided below. The documentary, directed by Victress Hitchcock and produced by Chariot Videos, specifically examines the intersection of Western thought and Tibetan Buddhism.
