The Himalayan Trilogy Series:

A record of three journey undertaken by filmmaker, writer, and economist Laurence J. Brahm between 2002 and 2004. Exploring mysterious regions of southwest China and Tibet, Brahm discovers that the beauty and silence of the mountain passes, rivers, and great valleys mirror the interior state of his soul. Further, that the future of humanity depends on our being able to modify our own economies and cultures to be more in harmony with our planet—in part by preserving and protecting the ethnic cultures of those from whom we may learn to reestablish a more gentle interaction with sacred nature.

Shambhala Sutra

• A search for the mythical kingdom of Shambhala

• Brahm tells the story of his expedition into Tibet’s furthest region, following an ancient sutra as his guidebook

• A grant from National Geographic Expedition will bring an interactive media exhibition from China to the USA bringing this magical journey to life.

Following the Shambhala Sutra—an ancient manuscript written by Penchen Lama over two hundred ago—the author started his journey to Shambhala, traveling through the deserts and mountains in Tibet. The journey began in Lhasa and continued deep into the harsh regions of Tibet.

Brahm’s 2004 expedition across western Tibet's Ngari region taught him that the ancient sutra was a metaphorical guidebook. Lessons learned from this journey are that short sighted greed, war and failure to protect our environment will cause kingdoms and empires to vanish.
