    Yangsi - Presented by the Alive Mind Cinema Series

    Recognized as the reincarnation (‘yangsi’) of Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, one of the most revered Tibetan Masters of the 20th century, Ugyen Tenzin Jigme Lhundrup must train to perpetuate this legacy, ultimately assuming his full responsibilities at age 18. YANGSI follows this unfolding story over fourteen years, bringing to light with unusual intimacy the experience of being “recognized”, both on the part of the young child, and for his family, his teachers, and his future disciples. A narration by the Yangsi himself adds poignant candor to this question, as he gives voice to his doubts and concerns, as well as his determination and conviction.
    Short interviews with eminent Buddhist teachers, such as Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche, and Matthieu Ricard, explore facets of the “reincarnation” issue, from traditional beliefs to an honest questioning of spirituality in the modern age. Filmed in large part in The Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan.
