Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche as Milarepa
Few months back, I was told to clean and dust an old leather suitcase. This suitcase held Neten Chokling’s most precious possession: his photo collection of his root teacher, H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. I went through the contents of this leather bag. Amidst many beautiful photos of Khyentse Rinpoche, there was this photo of Khyentse Rinpoche posing as Milarepa!

The monks of Gyurmeling Monastery (India and Tibet) feel very privileged to be able to take part in the bringing of Milarepa’s story to the world. They believe that they have contributed something precious towards the world. They believe that the messages within the film will contribute towards a better world. This is Universal Responsibility in its different form.

Orgyen Topgyal Rinpoche
Orgyen Topgyal Rinpoche, the oldest son of the IIIrd Chokling Rinpoche was one of the key figures in bringing the life of Milarepa to the screen. He assisted Neten Chokling Rinpoche (IVth Chokling Rinpoche and the reincarnation of his father) to his best potential.
When the IIIrd Chokling Rinpoche passed away, Orgyen Topgyal Rinpoche was only 21 years old. The present Neten Chokling Rinpoche was brought down from his birth
Orgyen Topgyal Rinpoche was not only playing the role of Yungtron Trogyal but as of the art historian on the set.
