Collection Creator:
Bastian, Edward W.  Search this
Extent:
Film reels (color sound; 14,000 feet)
Type:
Archival materials
Film reels
Date:
1982
Scope and Contents:
Outtakes are from an edited film which is part of a series on Tibetan Buddhism created by Bastian during his research and teaching in Tibetan Buddhist studies. The footage was shot during the four seasons in Lukil Valley, Ladakh, India and is the first film portrait of the annual cycle of ritual interdependence between Buddhist monks, laity, diety-protectors, and nature. The film observes how Buddhist families incorporate ethical precepts, prayers, and rituals into their daily life for healing; planting and harvesting crops; and warding off evil spirits. Documented are subsistence practices in the high valleys of Ladakh and the Tibetan plateau as well as weaving, dyeing, pottery making, and the preparation of herbal medicines. Film concludes with documentation of the winter chaam, a festival dance of protector deities, and the torgyal, a ritual battle performed to dispatch evil forces. Also includes sound recordings.
