'Tashi & The Monk' Wins an Emmy!

Sep 20, 2016-- Lobsang Phuntsok is a former Tibetan monk who trained with the Dalai Lama and spent years teaching Buddhism in the West. In 2006, he moved back to establish a community in the Himalayan foothills for orphans and impoverished children. Phuntsok remembers, "My birth wasn't something to celebrate. I brought a lot of pain and embarrassment to my family. That's why when I was younger I was always called "the uninvited guest of this universe." The Emmy-winning film Tashi & the Monk dives into the heart of Phuntsok's work, through the story of an endearing and troubled 5-year-old girl named Tashi who joins his school. This week you can watch the stunning short film in its entirety here, and learn more about the soul-stirring work being carried out in a hidden corner of our world. (89725 reads)
