About a week ago, I suggested to my friends on FB to watch two movies on Netflix, which one can download. One was Purrurambo and the other was Aluna (about the Kogi people). Today, I found out that the Dalai Lama is about to meet with Kogi Leaders, as well as the Hopi and others. This is the best news I could get on the 4th of July–the very best. The Dalai Lama has said,
“Peace and the survival of life on earth as we know it are threatened by human activities which lack a commitment to humanitarian values. Destruction of nature and nature’s resources result from ignorance, greed and lack of respect for the earth’s living things.”
– Dalai Lama
This is the link, and I highly suggest watching those two movies, and thinking very deeply about what it truly means to be human, and how and what we have to teach each other. Purrurambo and Aluna are two very different perspectives of native people. One can really sense the workings of karma seeing these two movies in contrast.
