Words of My Perfect Teacher

From the World Cup to the mythical mountain kingdom of Bhutan, Words of My Perfect Teacher follows three students on a quest they hope will lead to wisdom. The catch is... the teacher aka Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche. Soccer obsessed, charismatic filmmaker, and citizen of the world: Khyentse Norbu may be one of the world's most eminent Buddhist teachers, but it's a job description he slyly rejects at every turn.

Words of My Perfect Teacher is for those who wish they'd met Yoda or Merlin, and long for the opportunity to engage with a teacher who defies convention.
