"Vajra Sky Over Tibet is an illuminating meditation on the deepest of Buddhist philosophical concerns - impermanence.  Study of a threatened culture and people is beautifully shot inside Tibet's most sacred sites and arrives with the blessing of the Dalai Lama.  The peaceful principles of the faith infuse every frame." - Richard Kuipers, Variety

"John Bush's enthralling and heartfelt documentary explores the beauty and the vulnerability of the Buddhist tradition in Tibet today and its importance to the Western world." - Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality & Practice

"Images of the landscape, temples, and art dazzle with their gemlike luminosity and vaulting immensity." - Peter Keough, Boston Phoenix


"A giant spiritual tapestry." - Amit Goti, LA Yoga
