The childhood of a Tibetan grand Lama

The 2-year-old reincarnated Lama.

Ratak Puntso seems like any other 2-year-olds, but he has always been destined for an exceptional life. Recognised as the reincarnation of the grand master Kalu Rinpoche, Ratak is already inducted as a grand Lama of Tibetan Buddhism.

He will spend his childhood without much contact with peers around his age.

Instead, he will be surrounded by monks, tutors and servants who all take part in passing down the teaching as well as protecting the “precious” child.
