My journey as a Westerner recognized as the reincarnation of a Tibetan Buddhist master.
About an important Tibetan Buddhist institution dating back 800 years.
Articles and visual media about my story.
Where members can post comments and questions.
I will do my best to respond.
I regularly lead guided meditation sessions in Paris.
This is my personal website, and I am thrilled to be able to share my life story and thoughts with you.
In the pages that follow, you will be able to read about my experience as one of the first Westerners recognized as the reincarnation of a Tibetan Buddhist monk, you can also read about the Buddhist doctrine of rebirth and about the Tulku tradition. The Media section lists a number of articles both by and about me, some of which are available in .pdf format, a couple of recent videos, and a 52-minute documentary about my experience living in a Tibetan Buddhist monastery in South India, which you are free to watch at your leisure. There is also a discussion section for those of you who would like to ask me questions, or discuss issues relating to Buddhism, reincarnation, etc. You must sign up (free) in order to be able to use this section, and I ask that everyone respect each other, which means no trolling and no rude remarks. Otherwise, you just may experience compassion's wrathful aspect ;-)
I would like to thank Bruno, a personal friend, for helping me to make this website a reality, and for having patiently waited while I was busy doing a million other things. I would also like to thank Marcel Poulin, my good friend, whose website was the inspiration for this one. And thanks to my wife, Emmanuelle, for her encouragement and honest comments on the site, and for her unwavering love and support.
With many smiles and sincere thanks,
