Narrated by Academy Award winner Sir Ben Kingsley, this documentary is a cinematic portrait of Mongolia’s national treasure, Khamba Lama Natsagdorj. He is the Head Lama at the Manba Datsan Monastery of The Medicine Buddha in Mongolia and the Chief Medical Doctor at The Medical Training Centre of Mongolian Medicine in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. He treats patients around the world with traditional Mongolian herbal medicine.
Faith and science are elegantly reconciled as viewers are immersed in the Lama’s eclectic, relentless humanitarian efforts. This depiction of the Lama’s life of focused charity is an inspirational journey through his homeland.
THE MEDICINE BUDDHA is a beautifully shot cinematic journey capturing the wonder of the stunning landscapes of Mongolia, accompanied by an evocative score from leading Mongolian composer, Erdenebat Baatar Erkaau.
