Genre: Documentary – Based on spiritual reincarnation.
In the film: Tenzin Zopa, a late master’s closest disciple, was given some hints in being ready to find a reincarnated child after Geshe Lama Konchog died of aging. He had questioned him whether the master chose the reincarnation. The reply was yes. The corpse was wrapped with a cloth and carried by monks without a coffin. In the Nepalese culture, a monk or a visitor throws a white cloth which is estimated measurement of one meter in length and 10 cm in width at the wrapped corpse. (I think this white cloth symbolizes a respect or an honour. The decease was burnt in a furnace and dissolved into ashes. After the burning session was over, there were white pearls and strangely, a footprint on the sand or the ashes in a direction of the East (if i am not wrong). The leader recognised them as the signs of the reincarnation of Lama Konchog.
The selected monk whom the decease trusted most started to search the child in the same direction. He had brought the decease’s rosaries for noticing a response of the child. He met many children until he found one. He tried to spend his time staying with the child for few nights and knew if the child was aware of his presence. After that, he brought him to see the head leader for a performance of recognition. The test was successful. The child chose to be a monk.
Review: It left me very touching and memorable. Tenzin Zopa is brave and stoic. It will spice your spirit up! The film has beautiful scenarios.
P.s. I notice that this writing is not organised well. Never mind about it.
