Another link for the same video

I am watching in between teaching sessions here. I am quite moved by the story. Although Lelung Rinpoche chose lay life and lives in the UK, he lives in such simple circumstances (a garden shed). With such an important title he could probably live a very lavish lifestyle in a huge house if he wanted to, but he lives like a poor person.

This looks like it could have been interesting. Did anyone catch it?

Haha try the second link. I have no idea how that happened. I deleted the first post with the link to Amapour. The link is now correct for "Buddha of Suburbia" about Lelung Rinpoche.

Very beautiful story, thanks for posting.

May Rinpoche be permitted to visit Tibet, and may he find the teachings he seeks.

Thanks you Ven. Khedrup, I really enjoyed this video. I wasn't so interested in the "plot," per se, but I was very moved by Rinpoche crying about the poor donkeys who built some large structure for them. Very very moved at his sincere compassion. You just don't see that every day. Wonderful.
