The film, in three parts, takes you on a journey through the fascinating and no less
inspiring story of Buddha’s life, his teachings, Buddhist practices, the emergence of two
sects – Theravada and Mahayana, and the coming of Buddhism to Sikkim via Tibet in 15th-16th
Century. The ultimate goal is to reach Buddhahood – stage beyond Nirvana – and the path is
through six ‘paramitas’ – or transcendental precepts and practices of virtues – generosity,
morality, perseverance, forgiveness, connection and wisdom. It is not an easy job to become

wheels and Thangka paintings have their own significance. Watch how Tibetan Buddhism and
culture gets merged with indigenous practices in Sikkim. Have a peep into the life of
