Tashi and the monk trailer

opinion

Buddhist Monk Lobsang was trained under the guidance of His Holiness the Dalai Lama but 8 years ago he left behind a life as a spiritual teacher in the United States to create a unique Tashi and the monk trailer in the foothills of the Himalayas which rescues orphaned and neglected children.

Wild and troubled, Tashi is struggling to find her place amongst 84 new siblings. Eight years ago Buddhist monk Lobsang Phuntsok, hand-picked by the Dalai Lama to share Tibetan Buddhism with the West, felt called to leave a life as a spiritual teacher in the US and return to the region of his birth to try and rescue children from suffering.
