Light of the Valley presents the inspiring story of the 15th renovation of the Swayambu Stupa in Kathmandu, Nepal, recognized as one of the most important monuments in the Buddhist world. Renowned for its great antiquity and spiritual significance, this historic site has been worshipped continuously through the centuries by the people of Nepal and Tibet. It remains a focus of daily offerings, prayers and ceremonies today. In 2008, Tibetan lama Tarthang Tulku sent his daughter, Tsering Gellek to Nepal to direct the renovation, a project that is traditionally undertaken once in a century. With the help of 70 skilled Nepalese artisans, in less than two years the project was successfully completed. Light of the Valley, a 30-minute documentary produced by Guna Foundation, chronicles this momentous achievement. Light of the Valley reawakens an appreciation for culturally significant sites and the value of their conservation throughout the world. Art restoration work undertaken with sensitivity, goodwill and community participation enriches our human heritage and benefits generations to come.
