It really makes me happy and proud as a human being and large number of people are showing significant amount of interest in His Holiness's message of love and peace. It really makes me feel happy and a hope that this world can still be a very livable ..

This is an important work. Watch it for the message, for the lesson - not necessarily for how well the film is crafted. Watch it with an open mind and you may find that by the end your heart has been opened as well.

It's always a joy seeing the Dalai Lama speak (especially on the big screen), and of course the scenery from India was beautiful. But as a whole, this documentary was a huge disappointment.

This film is about scholars who went to India on a global sustainability summit at the turn of the millennium. But the beautiful scenery and good intentions were ruined by the bickering, egotistical scholars & participants from the West.

The summit very quickly devolved from discussions of global sustainability to ego battles among the participants. The almost singular exception Vicki Robin - one of my favorite speakers, and author of Your Money or Your Life.

As a social justice advocate, it was particularly frustrating to watch these progressives sabotage their own efforts ... because this is what I see in every city, among many organizations working towards sustainability.

If you're a huge fan of the Dalai Lama, go ahead and watch this film for the 10-15 minutes of him speaking. Or, if you're a part of an organization working for sustainability, and you want a case study of how destructive patterns sabotage a group, then you may get something out of this.

For most people, I suggest skipping this film completely.
