About The DVD

A documentary on Sherpa Nima Temba, who climbs for the umpteenth time one of the highest Himalayan summits. The other members of the expedition, most often Europeans or Americans, follow his footprint. The media have an eye only for the Western heroes. The Sherpa that makes these acts of heroism come true is never in the spotlight, However, from the very beginning of mountaineering, it is thanks to the Sherpa that these summits have been reached successfully. The film follows the climbing of one of the highest Himalayan summits and looks at it through Nima Temba’s eyes against the background of his biography, of the cultural and daily life in Kathmandu and of his native soil in the valley of Rolwaling.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
