David Cherniack is one of Canada’s leading filmmakers, with a self-proclaimed focus on “eclectically spiritual documentaries.” Many of them are available for free viewing on his website: www.allinonefilms.com
One of his movies: The Oracle – Reflections on Self – is now available for free viewing (in a lower-resolution format) on YouTube and, with David’s permission, here…
The Oracle is a 52-minute documentary about Nechung, the State Oracle of Tibet. Cloaked in secrecy for over 400 years, the State Oracle of Tibet has been a strange and mystical aspect of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. This ancient spirit, which has inhabited a succession of thirteen human mediums, advises the Dalai Lama on matters of public and religious policy. To witness the eerie spectacle of a medium entering a trance state and being possessed by the Oracle is to confront profound questions about the very nature of human consciousness.
With permission from the Dalai Lama that had never been granted before, The Oracle explores the ancient practice of consulting spirits.
