Dorje Shugden on the trail of a Buddhist protector is a documentary film project. The general idea is to do documented research on the origin and practice of the Buddhist protector deity Dorje Shugden. We will travel to Tibet and surrounding countries, visit historically relevant sites and talk to its followers and masters all over the world. Important for us is to show the practice as integrated part of a living Buddhist tradition without going into the recent controversy. We will have a rather scientific and objective approach, understandable for everybody. To see how Dorje Shugden practitioners realize their protector practice in their day to day life offers a different way of perception.
The dedicated team consists of five people and together we represent quite some expertise. Students of film and visual design, a professional photographer, a monk, known for his knowledge on the subject and a professional sound designer, not to forget helpers and friends, translators and organization talents. We are all very happy to be part of this exceptional project and with your help we will definitely have a wonderful result for now we wont upload our pictures here, to avoid difficulties during our shooting. Please be patient with this we will update this section in some time. Meanwhile you can always contact us via e mail or skype to get more personal information. Never- theless we want to state here that this project is not connected to any organization. Although we will ask our teachers for advice the project is completely independent.
Storyboard This documentary film is made to present well researched information about the Buddhist protector deity Dorje Shugden. In order to bring facts to life, we want to show and document them in their original context.
