Tibetan Buddhism is more than 2,500 years old. This CBS program visits Padma Samye Ling, a retreat and Tibetan Monastery in upstate New York. The monastery was founded twenty years ago by the Venerable Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche, and his brother the Venerable Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche. The two came to the United States in the 1980’s and are among those responsible for bringing Tibetan Buddhism to the west. We hear Khenpo Tsewang as he explains the basic tenets of this faith and he shares his reflections on what it means to him to share this ancient lineage with America.
