Akong at Arran High School

A film of the life story of the Tibetan lama who founded Europe’s first Buddhist monastery is showing at Arran High School on Thursday June 1.

Akong: A Remarkable Life, which premiered at Samye Ling in Eskdalemuir earlier this spring, follows the life of Akong Tulku Rinpoche from his birth in Tibet to his murder in China in 2013.

The film’s billing begins: ‘In 1959, a dramatic 10-month escape from Tibet through the Himalayas would change the course of his life – and the lives of many thousands of people around the world.’
