The history of Holy Isle on film

2022 marks the 30th anniversary since Rokpa Trust first took over custodianship of Holy Isle.

In honour of this, Christian Dutton and his team of hardworking helpers have put together this beautiful video which explains the island’s long history as well as showing how truly beautiful and unique it is.

The video follows the development of the Holy Isle Project under the visionary leadership of Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche (the Abbot of Samye Ling Monastery and Tibetan Centre, and Chairman of Rokpa Trust), as well as the dedication of countless volunteers who have given freely of their time, resources and labour over these thirty years.
