Great Transmission

Episode 1 of 1

Imagine that you are one of a handful of survivors of a disaster that has virtually erased your culture. Now you must recover the knowledge that was lost and find ways to ensure that it continues into the future. The Great Transmission is the story of one Tibetan refugee lama and his efforts to preserve the sacred texts of his tradition. But more than that, it is the story of the epic journey of a precious inheritance of human knowledge from its origins in Ancient India to the present day, and the celebration of the valiant efforts of those devoted to its survival.
