Ossian: American Boy, Tibetan Monk

PBS Premiere: September 4, 1990

Synopsis

Ossian Maclise is not an average American teenager. Born in Massachusetts, he has been living in a Tibetan Buddhist monastery since the age of four. At seven, his monastic order recognized Ossian as a tulku — a reincarnation of a high Tibetan lama. Ossian offers a fascinating glimpse into the life of a young man who embodies a surprising meeting of Eastern and Western culture.
