The Buddhist Broadcast Foundation, or , has finally made the documentary 'Tulku' available online. Being a young Buddhist is one thing, but being a tulku is another!

"Gesar Mukpo is a filmmaker who lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He is the son of the great Tibetan Buddhist teacher, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and his British wife. As he gathers impressions from others, Gesar reveals his own poignant story of living in the West with this unique label and legacy — endlessly scrutinized as someone supposed to be special and monumental. What does it mean to carry on a role designed for an old world when you’re living in a completely new one? How will Gesar and other Western tulkus fulfill their destiny?"

Check it out here:

The site where the documentary is hosted in Dutch, but don't worry, the documentary is in English. Tip: go to 'instellingen' to choose the videoplayer and the quality of the streaming: 'breedband' is better quality but you need a better connection for that.
