Honpa Hongwanji Hawaii Betsuin and the Buddhist Study Center are pleased to host a screening of Dalai Lama Awakening at the Buddhist Study Center on Saturday, February 4, 2017 at 4 p.m. The film is feature length. Refreshments and discussion follow until 7 p.m.

Narrated by actor Harrison Ford, Dalai Lama Awakening presents the profound and life-changing journey of innovative Western thinkers who travel to India to meet with the Dalai Lama to solve many of the world’s problems.

There is comedy and tension alike as egos emerge leading up to a session with the Dalai Lama. Join vicariously with the participants on their transformational journey and then talk about it with your fellow filmgoers.

For more information and a film trailer, see Hawaii Betsuin’s Dalai Lama Awakening calendar item.
