His Holiness the Dalai Lama is one of the leading figures of our world concerning ethics and religion. What is the reason behind his popularity? Is it a warm-hearted personality? Or do people long for what His Holiness has to say, long for Buddhist wisdom? How do Europeans live in their everyday life, what the Dalai Lama teaches? The film alternately shows long shots of people meditating and interviews. Thus, spectators are invited to share the quiet of meditation as well as are informed of what meditation means for practitioners. Protagonists are revered Buddhist teachers and "normal" practitioners from German speaking countries.
