Best Of ShAFF - Tashi & The Monk




16 Nov '17 | 7:30pm

On a remote mountaintop a brave social experiment is taking place.

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

5 year-old Tashi is the newest arrival. Her mother recently passed away and she's been abandoned by heralcoholic father. Wild and troubled, Tashi is struggling to find her place amongst 84 new siblings.

Can the community's love and compassion transform Tashi's alienation and tantrums into a capacity to make her first real friend?
