Unmistaken Child – Search for a Reincarnated Buddhist Master

Unmistaken Child follows the 4-year search for the reincarnation of Lama Konchog, a world-renowned Tibetan master who passed away in 2001 at age 84.

The Dalai Lama charges the deceased monk’s devoted disciple, Tenzin Zopa (who had been in his service since the age of seven), to search for his master’s reincarnation.

Tenzin sets off on this unforgettable quest on foot, mule and even helicopter, through breathtaking landscapes and remote traditional Tibetan villages.

Along the way Tenzin listens to stories about young children with special characteristics, and performs rarely seen ritualistic tests designed to determine the likelihood of reincarnation. He eventually presents the child he believes to be his reincarnated master to the Dalai Lama so that he can make the final decision.

  1. Beautiful movie. It brought up thoughts I could look at. I noticed I had some judgmental ones, like wondering, “Is this right to believe not only in reincarnation, but that one could say who reincarnated in another life?” I wondered about the Dalai Lama’s role in all this as well. I trust the DL only has the best of intentions for everyone, but I wonder, is he right?
    My studies and experience lead me to believe that we don’t usually experience circumstances or conditions or others or ourselves directly, but that we ‘filter’ all our experiences thru the ‘lens’ of our beliefs. So, I wondered about how various people were experiencing what they were experiencing, and what might be their beliefs, and how were their beliefs shaping their experiences.
    I also was appreciating how well this was filmed. I wondered, were the makers, the camera people and crew, did they spend years on this? If so, what a great commitment to make. They must have believed passionately in the project.
    Thank you for making such a movie.
