Wheel of Time

80 mins
8 / 10 (1164)


A Tibetan Buddhist initiation rite, which took place in 2002 in India, performed by the Dalai Lama. For six weeks, hundreds of thousands of Buddhists came en masse to absorb themselves in prayer and meditation, represented by the Mandala, which then dissolves into the wind.

MUBI's take

Infused with Herzog’s distinctive and infectious enchantment at the world, Wheel of Time explores a unique practice: the largest Buddhist ritual for peace. Always chasing the “ecstatic truth,” the German master’s playful, pensive documentary reverberates with the liberating impermanence of life.
