Yangsi DVD

A Coming of Age Story Set Between Two Worlds

Jigme Lhundrup is the "Yangsi", the reincarnation of a greatly revered Tibetan Buddhist meditation master. He must train to uphold this legacy from the age of four. Even with the loving support of his teachers and family the way forward is not always clear. Questions begin to arise about the place of his tradition in the modern world, and his own abilities. In this documentary film, director Mark Elliott ("The Lion's Roar", "Bodhisattva") follows a journey spanning fourteen years, culminating in the Yangsi's introduction to the world as a young man, when he must fully assume the mantle of his predecessor. With unprecedented access, "Yangsi" explores everyday life within a mystical tradition and reveals the unusual spirit of the boy at its center. Shot on location in Bhutan, Nepal, India, France, and the United States.

A portion of sales go to support Shechen, the Dilgo Kyentse Fellowship.

DVD, 82 minutes. Includes 45 minutes of bonus materials, including interviews with Tibetan Buddhist teachers, scenes from the 2012 World Tour, and more.
