Place your ORDER Toll Free
Thank You for shopping with us. We appreciate your business, patronage, and look forward to serve you.
Footage and photographs taken of the Muslims in Lhasa in 1997 are richly complemented by a delightful interview with a Tibetan Muslim who describes the history and life of Islam in Tibet, the two Muslim communities living there today and the relationship between the Buddhists and the Muslims.
The viewer will be intrigued by quite charming descriptions of Tibetan Muslim society and family life, the homes, food and clothing, language, education, trade and traditional herbal medicine.
This video participates in the surprise to all of us that Islam has been present for nearly 1,000 years in what we have considered to have always been a monolithically Buddhist culture. This video is accessible for anyone to see, although intended for teachers concerned with geography, world religions, the interfaith dialogue and multicultural studies.
