The latter are often no longer able to practice their religion unhindered, an essential element of their native culture.
The film describes a colorful culture in which secular and spiritual powers are in the same hands. This concentration of the Dalai Lama's power becomes visible in the fortifications overlooking the city of Lhasa in Potala.
Furthermore, pictures from Katmandu show how the old customs and traditions, threatened by extinction in their land of origin Tibet, are surviving among the Tibetans in exile.
