Embassy of India in Ljubljana under Amrit Mahotsav presents an online event in which Benoy K. Behl, India Habitat Centre, will hold a talk followed by film screening ‘The Second Buddha’ on Saturday, 23 April 2022 at 1330 hrs (Central European Time) or 1800 hrs (Indian Standard Time).

This is one of the great true stories of the world. It is a story about one of the most powerful personalities in all history. Guru Padmasambhava, with his magic and his flamboyant ritual dances, dominated the Roof of the World in his time in the 8th century. 

The great Guru, in the power and majesty of his mission, travelled across the highest mountains of the world. He traversed 2,000 km of inhospitable, high-altitude desert, to spread the message of the Buddha. These are regions where oxygen is scarce in the thin air and often it is difficult to breathe. Mountains reach for the skies and even the scores of passes he would have had to cross, are often higher than 15,000 feet. The film attempts to convey some of the drama and meaning of this great story.
