Prayers of the Ancient Ones takes us on a journey to Bodh Gaya, India, the holiest site of Buddhism where the Buddha attained enlightenment under the Bodhi tree. Each year, over 10,000 Tibetan monks, nuns and lay pilgrims travel from all across the Himalayan region to pray for world peace and affirm their heritage in the face of overwhelming challenge and loss. This is the story of a sacred place, an exiled people and a Tibetan lama's immense efforts to restore Tibetan culture.
