The film follows a Tibetan Buddhist monk as he searches for the reincarnation of his beloved teacher, the world-renowned Lama (master teacher) Geshe Lama Konchog. The filming, which began in October 2001, spans a time frame of five and a half years. It follows the deceased Lama’s closest disciple – a modest young monk named Tenzin Zopa, who speaks English well – as he seeks to find the child who is his master’s reincarnation.
Because Tenzin is only a humble monk, he questions his ability to accurately find and recognize the reincarnation of an enlightened master. He is daunted by the difficulty of the task, for which he alone seems responsible. Following a combination of prayer, intuition, and various forms of divination, Tenzin travels to the tiny villages of the remote Tsum Valley on the Nepal–Tibet border, and checks many families and many children. He seeks to find a young child of the right age and many tests and trials must be met before the existence of a Rinpoche – a reincarnated Tibetan master – could be confirmed.
And don’t forget if you would like to meet and receive teachings directly from Geshe Tenzin Zopa in person, he is teaching on the Seven Point Mind Training at Jamyang Leeds on Saturday 24th February. To find out more click here.
