Women of Tibet: Gyalyum Chemo - The Great Mother < PREVIOUS MOVIE | NEXT MOVIE >
USA 2006 • Directed by Rosemary Rawcliffe • Documentary • 57 minutes

This is the compelling life story of Dekyi Tsering, the mother of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. The Tibetan people call her “Gyalyum Chemo” or “Great Mother.” During the course of her extraordinary life, she gave birth to sixteen children, seven who survived, two of whom were recognized as incarnate lamas, and one who has been recognized by millions around the globe as one of the world’s leading ambassadors for peace. By following the journey of her life and times, we can see the gifts that mothers can and do give when there is nothing left to give. As the Dalai Lama states, “Our first real teacher of compassion is our Mother.”
