    The film shows a Tibetan Buddhist initiation rite, which took place in 2002 in India in the presence of the Dalai Lama. For six weeks, hundreds of thousands of Buddhists flocked here, dedicating themselves to prayer and meditation. After a long conversation with the Dalai Lama, Herzog makes his way to the foot of Mount Kailash in Tibet, 5000 metres above the sea level, to observe the pilgrims' march.

    The film has been brought to you with the generous help from the Goethe Institute.
