Movie Screening and Q&A
Runtime: 1hr 44min
We are delight to announce this special Losar event for screening the movie “Unmistaken Child” with special Guest Geshe Tenzin Zopa.
The reason for showing it at this time is because we have Geshe Tenzin Zopa visiting us and leading a retreat that will finish at 5pm on February 26 (for more details about the retreat click here). This documentary follows Geshe Tenzin Zopa’s search for the reincarnation of his teacher, Geshe Lama Konchog. Also, this documentary is almost a home movie for us, as it concerns a lama who lived at our home monastery, Kopan, in Nepal. You will see scenes of monastery life and faces of people who are part of our international Dharma family.
After the film we will have a Q&A with Geshe Zopa.
From the filmmaker’s website:
The Buddhist concept of reincarnation, while both mysterious and enchanting, is hard for most westerners to grasp. UNMISTAKEN CHILD follows the four-year search for the reincarnation of Lama Konchog, a world-renowned Tibetan master who passed away in 2001 at age 84. The Dalai Lama charges the deceased monk’s devoted disciple, Tenzin Zopa (who had been in his service since the age of seven), to search for his master’s reincarnation.
Tenzin sets off on this unforgettable quest on foot, mule and even helicopter, through breathtaking landscapes and remote traditional Tibetan villages. Along the way, Tenzin listens to stories about young children with special characteristics, and performs rarely seen ritualistic tests designed to determine the likelihood of reincarnation. Tenzin eventually presents the child he believes to be his reincarnated master to the Dalai Lama so that he can make the final decision.
