‘s sneak previews ran at the Auspicious Thanka Gallery in Beijing’s 798 Art Zone from April 25-26.

Shot in 2020 in China, India, Nepal and Bhutan, it is the third installment of award-winning American explorer and film director Laurence J. Brahm’s Lotus-Born Master documentary series.

In the documentary series, Brahm, who has long cherished a strong interest in Himalayan cultures, tries to align the spiritual and the science–quantum physics and astrophysics in particular.

The documentaries capture his arduous journey to discover the codes to access secret teachings of Guru Padmasambhava, or Lotus-born Master, a legendary 8th-century figure, widely known as the founder of Tibetan Buddhism who travelled extensively along the Southern Silk Road spreading Buddhism.
