Researched, directed, and produced by Ravi Verma, this documentary has in-depth interviews with several Buddhist scholars, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Robert Thurman, B. Alan Wallace, Mattheiu Ricard, and Thupten Jinpa. This film has been shot in India and Nepal, covering all major Buddhist locations of importance.

This film has two major points of focus: the Buddhist text, the Heart Sutra, which is part of the Ultimate Wisdom Text of Buddhism, and the travel diary of the 7th Chinese monk Xuanzang, who undertook a 10,000-mile and 16-year-long journey to India to Vulture's Peak, where the Heart Sutra is supposed to have been delivered.

The Heart Sutra is a dialog between two prominent figures in Buddhism: Arya Avalokiteshvara and Arya Shariputra. This dialog is supposed to have happened in the presence of the Lord Buddha at the top of a hill called Griddhra Kut, or Vulture's Peak, in Rajgir, Bihar, India. The place still exists today.
