An extraordinary journey for the love of animals has been captured in this 30-minute documentary produced by Geshe Jinpa with the help of friends from Amitabha Buddhist Centre in Singapore.

108 Yaks: A Journey of Love & Freedom follows the project from its origins, from Geshe Jinpa receiving Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s advice to save the yaks, to the 19-day expedition driving the yaks across the Himalayan range of northeast Nepal to their remote sanctuary in the holy valley of Rolwaling.

The video shows the challenges that Geshe Jinpa's team of herders, porters and camera crew faced as they tackled high mountain passes and treacherous cliffs in 2011, all the while responsible for the lives and safety of these large animals. Undaunted by obstacles and spurred on by numerous prayers, Geshe Jinpa and his team miraculously completed the mission with all yaks – and humans – arriving at their destination.

Geshe Jinpa has served Lama Zopa Rinpoche with deep devotion for 16 years. Ever attentive to Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s needs, Geshe Jinpa also actively carries out whatever advice Rinpoche gives him.
