The Devotion of Matthieu Ricard [documentary]

Son of a well-known French philosopher, Matthieu Ricard became one of the first Westerners to follow the path of Tibetan Buddhism to its fruition.

He found himself, as a young photographer, travelling in India where he ended up going north to Darjeeling and encountering the Tibetan community in exile.

There he quickly met, and took sanctuary in, the man who was to become his spiritual master, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

Please enjoy the following video clip. It is a trailer for a fabulous documentary about Ricard's spiritual awakening as enabled by his complete devotion for his teacher.
