His path to enlightenment began with revenge...
In his directorial debut, Buddhist lama Neten Chokling vividly presents the captivating story of Milarepa, the man who would become Tibet’s greatest yogi.
In the dramatic setting of 11th century Tibet - a time of roaming sorcerers and yogis, according to Buddhist legend - a youthful Milarepa is propelled into a world of sorrow and betrayal after his father's sudden death. Destitute and hopeless, he sets out to learn black magic - and exact revenge on his enemies. But it is in confrontation with the consequences of his anger that he learns the most.
Filmed on the breathtakingly scenic Indo-Tibetan border, with Tibetan monks serving as most of the cast and crew, and from the Producer of THE CUP and TRAVELERS AND MAGICIANS, MILAREPA offers a provocative parallel to the cycle of violence and retribution we see consuming today's world.
