"How does one live in this world and fulfill one's destiny?" ~ a documentary by Gesar Tsewang Arthur Mukpo, son of renowned Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

At age three, Gesar Tsewang Arthur Mukpo, son of renowned Tibetan Buddhist teacher Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and his British wife Diana, was identified as the reincarnation of the late Jamgon Kongtrul of Sechen, one of his father's own teachers in Tibet. Living in Boulder, Colorado and then Halifax, Nova Scotia, Gesar balanced competing cultures and strikingly different definitions of self.

His life was far from that of an ordinary contemporary American or Canadian - his father was a world famous Buddhist teacher and author - but there was no monastery upbringing like that of perhaps the best known tulku, the Dalai Lama, or even like his father. And after his father's untimely death, he was on his own with this challenge.

Inspired by Tibetan Buddhist teacher and noted filmmaker Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche (The Cup, Travelers and Magicians), Gesar Mukpo has documented his own story and those of several other tulkus in this personal and thoughtful film that asks the questions, "What does it mean to be identified as a tulku? and more broadly, "How does one live in this world and fulfill one's destiny?"

This documentary was shot on location in North America, Nepal and India. It features rare archival footage from Tibet, with appearances by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche and H.H. Ogyen Trinley Dorje, the 17th Karmapa.
