Return to Gandhi Road | Thursday 01 Oct | 6:35pm | Rated: Exempt | $10
Return to Gandhi Road tells the powerful story of Kangyur Rinpoche; a renowned Tibetan Master who, heeding the imminent danger of the 1950's Cultural Revolution, and under the instructions of the Dalai Lama, braved the dangerous journey over the Himalayan mountains to India, rescuing two tons of Buddhist texts that otherwise faced potential extinction.
Told through the eyes of New Zealander Kim Hegan, as he now, more than 40 years after Rinpoche's passing and his Buddhist practice abandoned, will re-trace the journey he made to Darjeeling 46 years earlier, to tell Rinpoche's profound story, while healing the trauma that kept him away for so long.
Doors open 6pm and the evening starts a little later than usual, 6:35pm, to allow those attending the Museum lectures time to arrive without rushing.
