The child is recognized as the reincarnation (Yangsi) of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, a revered meditation master from Tibet who escaped the Chinese occupation, settled in Bhutan and Nepal, and passed away in 1991. At 18, the young man is expected to assume the responsibilities of a spiritual leader of his tradition. This 82-minute film shows unprecedented access to Yansi&rsquo;s childhood years and is interspersed with family visits and the transmission of tantric practices by teachers who received them from him in his former life.</p> CC Women's Basketball Tue, 20 Nov 2012 14:34:13 MST https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-01-26-cc-women-s-basketball https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-01-26-cc-women-s-basketball <p><em>Saturday, January 26, 2013 6:00 PM</em></p><p>vs. Trinity</p> CC Men's Basketball Tue, 20 Nov 2012 14:26:53 MST https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-01-26-cc-men-s-basketball https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-01-26-cc-men-s-basketball <p><em>Saturday, January 26, 2013 8:00 PM</em></p><p>vs. Trinity</p> "My Country is Tibet" and BYkids - Screening, Discussion, and Reception Fri, 25 Jan 2013 13:06:59 MST https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-01-28-my-country-is-tibet-and-bykids-screening-discussion-and-reception https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2013-01-28-my-country-is-tibet-and-bykids-screening-discussion-and-reception <p><em>Monday, January 28, 2013 7:00 PM</em></p><p>Young filmmaker Namgyal Trichen, coronated king-in-exile of Tibet by the Dalai Lama, and former CC trustee Holly Carter '85, a Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist and founder of the documentary nonprofit BYkids, will screen short BYkids films and discuss the power of global storytelling.
