Kunsang Yeshe Retreat Centre
Kunsang Yeshe Centre will be screening The Unmistaken Child in anticipation of Phuntsok Rinpoche’s (Lama Kunchog’s reincarnation – the subject of the film) Australian tour! Punstok Rinpoche and his attendant, Tenzin Zopa (also featured in the movie), will be visiting Kunsang Yeshe Retreat Centre in late August. Exact date to be announced shortly!!
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 aboutyoung children with special characteristics, and performs rarely seen ritualistic tests designed to determine the likelihood of reincarnation. He eventually presents the child he believes to be his reincarnated master to the Dalai Lama so that he can make the final decision…
The movie screening is free.
We hope to see you at the screening!.
