Tenzin Zopa, as seen in Nati Baratz’s UNMISTAKEN CHILD.  Courtes

I watched a documentary last evening, titled

“Unmistaken Child”. This documentary by Israeli filmmaker Nati Baratz

Is about a Tibetan monk’s four-year odyssey to find his reincarnated master.

Only seven when he was taken under Lama Konchog’s wing, Tenzin spent the

Next twenty-one years following his master. Following Tibetan Buddhist tradition,

A great spiritual master’s death leaves relics of pearls, a symbol of purity and

Enlightenment. Lama Konchog’s cremation left behind not only pearls but also a

Footprint pointing eastwards – and hence starts the quest for Tenzin for the

Reincarnated form of Lama Konchog, his master.

The four year journey eventually led Tenzin to a village where he found the

Baby boy. I was piqued by how the authenticity of the child was verified

By the Lamas and Rinpoches, and eventually the Dalai Lama,

And how the child actually managed to identify the four items that

He used in his past life. However, the film does not preach, nor advocate

Or dispute the idea of reincarnation – but provide a rare glimpse of

This very fascinating process, if not, then at least, the beautiful

Nepalese and Tibetan scenery.
