"Five minutes before he died I was holding his hand and requested him to come back as a reincarnation."
When one of Tibet's greatest monks passes away, his shy and gifted disciple must complete a monumental task--
to find his reincarnated master in the form of a child. Plagued by doubt, he goes on an arduous journey to find the next spiritual leader, as thousands of followers, and the Dalai Lama await his discovery.
My gratitude to Deanna for sending me the link.
