Film Screening Yangsi

11/24/2013 2:00 pm
Location: Tibetan Museum
Description: Join us for an afternoon film screening of Yangsi. 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, follows a journey spanning 14 years culminating in the Yangsi's introduction to the world as a young man, when he must fully assume the mantle of his predecessor. Filmed on location in Bhutan, Nepal, India, France and the United States. Films are free with regular Museum admission of $6 Adults/$4 Students and Seniors.
