Plot Summary
He's known by different names -- Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, or Khyentse Norbu, the great Buddhist instructor reincarnated -- but either way, Norbu might be the most unassuming of Buddhist gurus. Reluctant to embrace what many perceive as his destiny, he prefers soccer games and drinks and even works in the movie industry as a director. This film follows Norbu on a pilgrimage to Bhutan by way of Germany and the United States after the 9/11 attacks, interviewing other Buddhists along the way.
