Torma - The Ancient Art of Tibetan Butter Sculpture




Produced under the guidance of 
The 17th Gyalwang Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje


Format: DVD 60 min.
Publication Date: Dec. 2014


Tormas are a unique form of Tibetan art using butter to create rich and radiant forms, beautiful in themselves and spiritually significant. Sculpted by initiated practitioners with absolute devotion, tormas are a link between the human and spiritual realms. The colorful intricate designs, born from mystical revelations, represent symbolic forms of enlightenment.

This 60-minute documentary illuminates Vajrayana Buddhism through the lens of tormas. Documenting weeks of preparation for the Kagyu Prayer Festival in Bodhgaya, as well as a Mahakala ritual in Nepal involving tormas and sacred dance, the film features interviews with the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa and other Kagyu Lineage Masters.
