54 Gandhi Road

In the footsteps of Kangyur Rinpoche

About Kangyur Rinpoche

Who was Kangyur Rinpoche? One of the first Tibetan Masters who, heeding the imminent danger to Tibetan Buddhism during the Cultural Revolution of the 1950’s, braved the arduous journey over the Himalayan Mountains to India, rescuing many thousands of Buddhist texts [2 tons] that otherwise faced potential extinction.

The 54 Gandhi Road project

54 Gandhi Rd is a feature documentary project on the extraordinary life story of Kangyur Rinpoche and of the select few Westerners who discovered him in Darjeeling India in the early 1970's.


A dedicated bank account has been opened and all contributions will go towards essential film costs.
