    This stunning feature length documentary, Beyond Two Worlds gives an intimate portrayal of the life of Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche IX, a highly recognised Buddhist incarnate Lama, and Abbot of Thrangu Monastery In Qinghai Province, Tibet, his life in the West, and his reconnection with his land and his people. A scholar, author, teacher, humanitarian, and spiritual friend, Traleg Rinpoché devoted his life to benefiting others, and ensuring that Tibetan Buddhism was apprehended and practiced traditionally but within a contemporary setting. His remarkable command of the English language ensured that any potential cultural and linguistics barriers were overcome and replaced with clear and penetrating teachings that brought the philosophy of Buddhism to life, in such a way that made it accessible philosophically and practically to enrich the lives of students of Buddhism in the west in particular, where Rinpoché spent much of his adult life.
