Description
 
Dzongsar Khyentse Norbu is one of the world's great Buddhist masters, but he is not your typical teacher. He is a cell-phone toting soccer-obsessed monk and film director whose feature films The Cup and Travellers and Magicians have been resounding international successes.
This is a poignant, often hilarious tale of students who follow Khyentse Norbu - a teacher who defies convention. Shot in the UK, Bhutan, Germany (where the monk meets the hooligans at a World Cup qualifying match), Canada and the US, the film features appearances by Benardo Bertolucci and Steven Segal and music by Sting, Joy Drop, Manu Chao, Eva Casidy, Laur Fugere and many others.Khyentse Norbu was born in a remote area of Bhutan in 1961 to a royal family of poets and yogis. At age seven, he was recognized as the third incarnation of the great Buddhist saint, Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, but a glimpse of a Bollywood epic on TV irrevocably changed his life. In his own filmmaking, he relies on the ancient Buddhist divination system called ÒMoÓ to make key decisions on subjects such as film stock, production schedules and casting.

Words of my Perfect Teacher June 2, 2007
Reviewer: betty kronsky from Santa Fe, NM United States  
This is a subtle engaging treatment of the relationship between teacher and student in Vajrayana Buddhism.  It shows the day-to-day interaction with a modern teacher and three of his students.  Then there is an interview with the teacher, who generously reveals his understanding of this relationship.
