This documentary is an excellent introduction to the Mandala Dance of the 21 Praises of Tara with footage from the 1998 Tara Dhatu pilgrimage to India and Nepal lead by Prema Dasara and Anahata Iradah, including the Taras dancing in India for His Holiness the Dalai Lama and, in Nepal the Abbot of Kopan asking Prema to teach his nuns…..The DVD includes bonus material with an interview HH tof he Dalai Lama’s sister, director of the Tibetan Children’s Village asking Prema to teach the Tibetan children.

"Teach the Tibetan women sacred dance," His Eminence Jamgon Kongrul Rinpoche asked his student, Prema Dasara. "Bring a group of western women to India to dance for the Tibetans. Inspire them so that they will want to learn".

Prema had been teaching the Mandala Dance of the 21 Praises fo Tara to women all over the world.

In 1998, fifty dancers, musicians, and videographers from eleven countries of origin traveled to India and Nepal in fulfillment of that request. Led by Prema Dasara and Anahata Iradah they danced for His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the entire Tibetan Community in Dharamsala, India. They danced at the Central Institute of Higher Tibetan Studies in Sarnath and in Bodhgaya where Buddha attained his enlightenment. They danced for His Eminence Jamgon Kongtrul in Nepal. Tibetan women were inspired and joined the dance.

"Others Before Self" is an incredible interview with Mrs. Jetsun Pema, the younger sister of H. H. the Dalai Lama, who is often referred to as the Mother of Tibet. She was the director of the Tibetan Children's Villages, and we interviewed her in Dharamsala. The interview is deep and poignant. It touches the heart and her spirit shines as she tells the story of how the Tibetan Children's Villages flourished amidst adversity in exile from Tibet. Woven into the interview is exquisite footage of Prema, Anahata and the 1998 delegation of Tara's sharing Dharma dances with the entire school. This documentary lifts the spirits and is a great companion to the Quite Revolution.
