The screening of a documentary film about southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region attracted an audience of around 200 people at the National Library of Latvia on Wednesday.


Sun Yinglai, the Charge d'Affaires of the Chinese Embassy in Latvia, introduced the documentary Deep into Shambhala by saying that it not only shows the beautiful landscapes of that part of China with its crystal green lakes and snow white mountains but also gives an insight into the day-to-day life of its inhabitants, the Tibetan ethic group, as well as the Han, Yi and Qiang ethnic groups.


The diversity of the local population resonates with the true beauty of nature expressing the soul of Shambhala, Sun Yinglai said.


Agita Batgalve, a sinologist and associate professor at the Asian Studies Department of the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Latvia, stressed in her speech the cultural and historical importance of Tibetan Buddhism which has preserved the religious tradition in one of its most ancient forms.


Professor Baltgalve noted that Latvia has seen visits of several Tibetan delegations, now the documentary films provides an opportunity to learn more about the land and people of Tibet by means of cinematography.


The show of the documentary in Riga was organized by the Chinese Embassy in Latvia.
