Journey into an Endangered World   88 minutes 

“John Bush, who has taken a long interest in our traditions, has created this full length documentary of pilgrimage to Central Tibet, bearing witness to the enduring faith there.
I am grateful to him for his dedication to this project to raise awareness of the Vajrayana Buddhist tradition of Tibet as well as the current restraints on religious freedom there. 
I wish this film every success."     
The Dalai Lama

"Not only the year’s best documentary, but also among the finest films ever made about religion...  traveling through Chinese-occupied Tibet with only a local guide and driver, Bush quietly captured the most remarkable portrait of that Himalayan land imaginable..a work of power and glory."              
Film Threat

"Vajra Sky Over Tibet is an illuminating meditation on that deepest of Buddhist philosophical concerns - impermanence. Study of a threatened culture and people is beautifully shot inside Tibet's most sacred sites and arrives with the blessing of the Dalai Lama. The peaceful principles of the faith infuse every frame...”        

"As the images unfold and the facts accrete like sand in a mandala, "Vajra Sky Over Tibet" builds an atmosphere of serene outrage."      
The Boston Globe

“One of the top 125 world cinema masterpieces of all time.”
World Movie Reviews

"Bush's stunning camera work adroitly captures the majestic landscapes and icons of Buddhism: its murals and artworks, monks and nuns... A tonic for Buddhists, no doubt, 
it offers many pleasures to atheists as well.”          
Village Voice

"Could soften the most brittle heart." 
Time Out New York

Spirituality & Practice

"A well-photographed inside look at a fascinating culture and its people."
Los Angeles Times

“Vajra is the Sanskrit word signifying the thunderbolt of illumination. This enthralling third documentary offers a cinematic pilgrimage to central Tibet, bearing witness to the indomitable faith of its endangered Buddhist community and the imminent threat to its very survival.”
