"Dalai Lama Renaissance":


Saw the film this last weekend in Portland, OR and LOVED it! Please let me know when it will be available for sale on DVD.

Thank you for the lovely work you are creating. We need more of these types of films!

Thank for for making this film.

Hi Khashyar,

I saw the film at the Rafael Theatre, California Film Institute in San Rafael, California.

The film is so heart warming and heart opening, it gave me the sense of being right there in the presence of His Holiness. In many ways, it is a healing film. You succeeded in creating an experience of being with the Dalai Lama, himself, which itself is healing and
and a meaningful contribution. I have a hunch that ,if people were hooked up to a brain imaging
or biofeedback device, you would actually see physical changes in most viewers.

I would love to have participated in your filmmaking journey

You are right on target with this one.

All the best to you,

San Francisco


I want to share my gratitude (profound experience), in seeing the movie Dalai Lama Renaissance, showing at the Hollywood Theater in Portland...

It touched me at my Core Self, in a very beautiful way...
I plan to go again next weekend!

Dear Khashyar,

It was lovely meeting you, and seeing your film. Last night, the film moved me so much.

The simplicity and brilliance of capturing the essence of the heart message is so important in reconnecting as a global family, and more than anyone or any film I have seen of late, YOU DID IT. The problem presently, is material and spiritual glamour. This movie gets to the heart of what is truly important.

Thank you so much for doing this film. It will change planetary consciousness for sure.

Just saw Dalai Lama Renaissance at the Frozen River Film Festival in Winona, MN. The film was intensely moving, thought provoking, and filled with the surprisingly pure humanity and humor of the Dalai Lama. It was a bright spot in my day and a reminder to be a kinder me. Thank you!

I saw this film in California it was really amazing, good job! =)



I would like to purchase a DVD of Dalai Lama Renaissance.

On Friday night, May 30th in Greensboro, NC I went to a pre-screening of the film. It was wonderful. Congratulations on a job well done.

I want a copy of my own so that I can hear the Dalai Lama laugh whenever I want!

Warm Regards,

I saw the film at Delhi's Tibetan Film Festival and immediately began spreading the news of it to all my friends. Please let me know when the DVD is available for purchase.
Thank you!

Last Sunday, my friend Annie and I (David) had the honor of watching your film, the Dalai Lama Renaissance. It was emotional for both of us to listen to the simple and yet, so profound, words of the Dalai Lama.

After the movie was completed, we had the honor of meeting Khashyar Darvich. Within a few minutes of our conversation, it was very clear to both of us what a huge heart he has, and like the Dalai Lama, he moved us emotionally.

Please share these words with him - thank you Khashyar - for bringing the worlds of the Dalai Lama to us, and for sharing your own words with us - it kept us talking about the movie and about our encounter for the rest of the evening.

I would like to order two (2) copies of the DVD Dalai Lama Renaissance.

I saw the film yesterday in Hilo, Hawai'i. It was a beautifully put together documentary and I was very moved by the Dalai Lama's teaching. I commend Mr. Khashyar Darvich also and thank him for bringing it to us.


P. S.


I saw the film in Chicago tonight, and it touched my heart. I'd like to purchase at least a couple (or more!) for friends and myself. Please let me know when its copies become available.

Thank you,

We just saw the film. Bravo.

Before the film we (a group of women) were discussing what type of conversation we would like to have with Obama, if we happened to be having tea with him. We were discussing what we can do to support the direction of this country, this world.

Then we saw the film. We all thought - Obama would find this film inspirational, encouraging, and focusing.

Thank you.

Thank you... it's a great movie, a great message and very well put together. I can't imagine what it was like to find the best footage out of 140 hours; you did a magnificent job of getting to the point and delivering the Dalai Lama's message.

Hello Khashyar,

It was a great pleasure for myself and my boyfriend to meet and speak with you at the 6:00 showing of "Dalai Lama Renaissance" last Friday. We heard through the grapevine that The Valley Art Theater in Tempe, AZ is going to continue showing your movie this coming week, and we offer our congratulations! We take great delight in spreading the word about the positive messages of your film.

Essentially, your film is a doorway for which to bring healing to All, and that is something we are very much about too!

Khashyar, we hope that many people watch your film to expand their awareness of themselves, so living from the heart comes naturally to us once again...and ultimately bring peace and harmony to our world!

With our best wishes to you and continued success with your film,

Amy L.

I loved the film. Will you be selling the soundtrack? It was so beautiful! As a yoga instructor I would love to have this soundtrack for teaching.

Thank you,

Dear Khashyar,

We so enjoyed the abundant feast you presented ... facets of the very precious Cosmic Heart of Love and Compassion manifesting as the Dalai Lama! THANK YOU!

What a marvelous presentation you and your colleagues created for the world! It will definitely touch, inspire, and encourage many to transform themselves more greatly into their higher immortal blueprints. This we must all each do for ourselves, individually...

With love and support for your Soul's heart-felt expressions, and your powerful determination to serve the greater good,

May Spirit Bless You.

M. and J.

Hello Khashyar,
