In 2018, a documentary expedition team followed the historic journey of the “Lotus-Born Master” (also known as Padmasambhava or Guru Rinpoche), who lived in the Himalayas during the Eighth Century. Shrouded in myth and mystery, the Lotus-Born Master, is recognized as the founder of Vajrayana or Tibetan Buddhism. In the documentary film, “Searching for Lotus-Born Master,” the expedition team sought to prove the legend to be true. The Lotus-Born Master had eight manifestations depicted in Thangkas, murals and statues across the Himalayas. In “Searching for the Lotus-Born Master,” documentary film director Laurence Brahm beckons to ask: was the founder of Tibetan Buddhism also the father of quantum physics? The expedition team sought to decode the quantum energy field behind each manifestation.
