The connection seems to be that in our strive for bigger, better and more, we can easily let things get out of hand.

In his unique way, the Dalai Lama approached business, the environment, education and the other topics with compassion, humor and insight.

Then, the Dalai Lama responds!... in great detail adding his own ideas and opinions regarding the topic of discussion.

I could not wait until November 15 to order this DVD from Amazon-- sorry Amazon. I ended up getting the DVD from a different place, however, I want to share my feelings about this Volume 2 DVD, "A Revolution of Ideas," with those of you who are interested in knowing more about it. After watching the first DVD documentary, "Dalai Lama Renaissance," I was absolutely "floored away" by the multiple stunning camera angels, cinematography, story, and of course the message and feeling behind the Dalai Lama's words-- what a gem of a documentary, brilliantly done! Now, this Volume 2 DVD, "A Revolution of Ideas," puts you in an intimate setting as if you are there ease dropping on the private discussions between the Dalai Lama and the various experts in their field. These experts go into deep detail regarding the topic of discussion and you really see how it relates to and affects them. I really got to understand the thought processes behind their ideas. It was very interesting. It was like meeting some of the experts from the original documentary again for the first time, because this time you get to really listen and understand deeply why they say what they say. And you hear the passion behind what they say. Then, the Dalai Lama responds!... in great detail adding his own ideas and opinions regarding the topic of discussion. It was very interesting to hear the detailed reasonings behind the Dalai Lama's ideas. Very interesting! In this DVD, it allowed time for me to really listen and get absorbed by what was being said. After watching this DVD, I was left transformed and in a different place then before I hit the play button. I was left in a meditative experience just by listening. Blessings and peace to you all!

When I saw the first "Dalai Lama Renaissance" Documentary film (which was narrated by Harrison Ford), I was moved by how the Dalai Lama guided the characters in the film to a deep personal transformation from ego-centeredness to open-heartedness. I felt like I went through my own inner journey as the characters did in the film.

I had the chance to see Volume 2 of the "Dalai Lama Renaissance" series at a special screening, and was amazed at the profound insight, humor and deep insightfulness of the Dalai Lama and the prominent thinkers who discussed inspiring solutions to the challenges of our time, in a variety of topics.

The Dalai Lama shines on this DVD.

It is rare to have the opportunity to spend time with the Dalai Lama in a very small and intimate setting, and especially speak with some of the most dynamic revolutionary thinkers of our time, like Quantum Physicists Amit Goswami and Fred Alan Wolf (from "What the Bleep Do We Know"), Michael Beckwith, Jean Houston and others.

In his unique way, the Dalai Lama approached business, the environment, education and the other topics with compassion, humor and insight.

I learned some things about how the Dalai Lama thinks from this DVD, that I did not know before, perhaps because of how intimately it was filmed, and also perhaps because these other revolutionary thinkers who were in the room dialoging with the Dalai Lama really engaged his imagination with their own insights, questions and ideas.

In most DVDs of the Dalai Lama, he is filmed in a large room or auditorium, with one or maybe 2 cameras, and you don't receive a sense of his humor and how he thinks.

You feel like you are in the room with him in this DVD, as it is filmed with at least 3 cameras, and some of the close-up shots so close that you feel that you are sitting 3 feet away.

The Dalai Lama is at his best, as this DVD was filmed at his residence in the Himalayan mountains of India.

The Dalai Lama is magical, funny, profound, and presents his ideas about a wide-variety of subjects, including business, the environment, spirituality, education and others.

The anecdotes he presents opens your mind, lift your spirit, make you smile, and leave your heart warm.

And you also receive extraordinary insight from amazing thinkers who are dialoging with the Dalai Lama in the intimate setting, including some of the pioneers and revolutionary thinkers of our time, including Amit Goswami (The 'Quantum Activist' and 'What the Bleep Do We Know'), Fred Alan Wolf ('What the Bleep Do We Know' and 'The Secret'), Michael Beckwith ('The Secret').

The combination of the Dalai Lama and these amazing thinkers, raising the bar for one another as they exchange ideas about how to create a better world, is like taking a shot of intellectual and spiritual expresso.

A surprise ending indeed! You must watch to see the outcome! An excellent film that confirms that our instincts as humans is to want all the answers, or to think we have all the answers. This is a good insight into the heart and mind of the Dalai Lama who helps us to recognize that answers are not always attainable. We spend too much time thoughtlessely scrambing for answers. Sometimes reaching from within ourselves, rather than extending outward, provides the best perspective.

Let me begin by saying that I really loved the first movie of this series, Dalai Lama Renaissance (DLR). The meeting documented in both DLR and here in DLR Volume 2 is that of the "Synthesis" group. This group included about 40 experts in various fields ranging from science, art and media to business, politics and spirituality. They were invited to spend a week in Dharamsala and through exchange of their ideas and experiences plant a seed of broader and more compassionate understanding of current world problems.

The first movie focused on the "human aspect" of the participants and how their personalities determine so much about how they approach the conference - and what they are ultimately able to get out if it. Volume 2 brings us into a meeting not seen at all in the first part, where the members of the Synthesis group represent their fields of expertise during an intimate discussion with the Dalai Lama.

Here we can see the Dalai Lama "at work" : listening and commenting on views about what is the current paradigm in these important fields of human enterprise. He is by no means an expert professional, as his guests are, but we can clearly see what valuable lesson the Dalai Lama brings with him wherever he is. It is the calm and open mind, the warm heart full of compassion and selflessness. No matter what your pursuit is, be it politics or art, you find that these basic human values (which the Dalai Lama embodies so fully) are a crucial ingredient - necessary to make any work benefit man kind and not become a source of more suffering.

On the other side, it was very interesting to hear the presentations of current state of thinking in so many different fields. In retrposect, it was a surprise to find a common connecting line.
