"a moving form of visual poetry. Captures
momentous magic. Applause to the filmmakers for
revealing the jewel in the lotus The film is an
intimate and stirring testimony" - Donna Strong - Awareness Magazine

"Dalai Lama Renaissance is a fascinating and
inspiring juxtaposition of human nature and
transcendence." Thom Hartmann Air America Radio Host

"The Comedy sensation of the summer is coming
soon to a theater near you and the latest
laughers from Ben Stiller, Anna Faris or Brad
Pitt can't even begin to hold a candle to it. The
movie's star? The Dalai Lama."

"I can't remember the last time a movie made me
laugh so hard." "There are scenes here every bit
as comically absurd [as] 'The Life of Brian.'
['Dalai Lama Renaissance'] plays more like a
Monty Python parody of new age workshops." - Rick
Kisonak - Film Threat Magazine

"This is a fine film and worth seeing" - Jordan
Colburn - Hollywood Today (review)

"an extraordinary portrait of His Holiness at
work." "Some of the best" comic scenes in any new
film out there right now" - Bob Graham - San Francisco Bay Times (review)

"It is a stunning tour-de-force" "intimate
glimpse into the Dalai Lama"s life" - Amy Wong - LA Yoga Magazine
