Summary:
Yatra is the Sanskrit word for pilgrimage or spiritual journey. As the first documentary in the Yatra Trilogy, Dharma River is a timeless journey through legendary rivers to the greatest Buddhist temples and mystical sites of Laos, Thailand, and Burma. It offers a direct experience of lost civilizations, sacred spaces, and ancient traditions.

The Buddha image reverberates continually through Dharma River and in dozens of temples, caves, and shrines, yet it is never the same. The film's narration explores the different cultural representations of this universal icon of inner peace and its contemporary relevance.

Journey into the living traditions and lost civilizations of this vibrant part of the world and explore the universal ideals of wisdom, compassion, and inner peace at the very heart of these ancient Buddhist cultures.

Special DVD Features Include: two viewing options: surround sound mix with narration, and ambient sound mix with music
• downloadable director's notes
