Republic of Kalmykia
His Holiness, the Dalai Lama,
visited the Buddhist republic of Kalmykia for 3 days Nov 29, 30 and Dec
01 of 2004.
All Planet Network had a team there about 14 hours before
His Holiness arrived, and were on hand for his small press conference upon
arrival, as well as events over the next days,
His message was one of peace, of a 5 point plan for happiness,
and that people should be serious, no matter which religion
about their religion, and living a good life.
The next morning, we traveled with a small press corps
to Hyrul, about 6 Km outside of Elista, the Capitol of Kalmykia. This site
is home to a beautiful Buddhist Temple, and is where he addressed thousands
of Kalmuks, Tuvans, Buryats and other Buddhist followers who had journeyed
to the site to see and hear His Holiness.
|His Holiness addresses the crowd, as a snow storm settles
Silence among the multitudes, and snow, and thousands
of faces, smiling, crying and
listening to every word, as he speaks for several hours.
|One of the camera positions chose to film from the crowds
'Point of Vidw'
about 50 people back from the staged area. With the tall
it made for great shots from this position, of reaction
shots of the crowd,
as well as the Dalai Lama when he was speaking.
He addressed the crown in Tibetian, which was translated
during pauses into Russiam.
