Once upon a time in a village in ancient India,
there was a little goat and a priest.
The priest wanted to sacrifice the goat to the gods.
He raised his arm to cut the goat's throat,
when suddenly the goat began to laugh.
The priest stopped, amazed, and asked the goat,
"Why do you laugh? Don't you know I'm about to cut your throat?"
"Oh, yes," said the goat.
"After 499 times dying...
and being reborn as a goat,
I will be reborn as a human being."
Then the little goat began to cry.
The high priest said, "Why now are you crying?"
And the goat replied, "For you, poor priest.
500 lives ago, I too was a high priest...
and sacrificed goats to the gods."
The priest dropped to his knees, saying,
"Forgive me, I beg you.
"从现在起 我愿当这片 净土上羊群的守护者"
From now on, I will be the guardian and protector of every goat in the land."
Now, then, what does this ancient tale teach us?
That no living creature...
must ever be sacrificed.
What happened to-to the goat?
哦 对了 那山羊
Ah, yes, the goat.
Mmm. The goat had many, many lives as a human being,
until one day he turned into someone...
very strange indeed.
Show us something of your previous life, huh?
Telegram for Lama Norbu.
I've been waiting for nine years...
to receive this.
是关于多杰喇♥嘛♥的吗？ - 是的
Is it about Lama Dorje? - Yes.
他们找到他了吗？ - 很有可能
Have they found him? - Perhaps!
We shall all pray for the success of your mission.
And, uh, remember to take your medicine.
[ 梵唱 ]
This is Lama Dorje's bowl.
You will need it for your search.
Everybody is a-wonderin'!
What and where they all came from!
Everybody is a-worryin' about where they're gonna go!
When the whole thing's done!
But no one knows for certain!
It's so wonderful to see you again,
but you must be very tired after such a long flight.
Yes, a little tired.
Tell me again about your dreams.
My dreams began about a month after Lama Dorje passed away.
They were so intense, and they always led me to the same place.
一片空旷的地方吗？ - 是的
The empty site. - Yes.
Lama Dorje was walking in front of me, on a hill.
He was pointing to this empty spot,
but there was nothing there.
And then I found the site...
quite by chance a few months after,
just as it was in the dreams.
I saw they had started to build a house.
我查过 这是一个… 一个工程师的家
I discovered that it belonged to the family of an engineer...
with a small boy called Jesse, an only child.
He was born a year after Lama Dorje passed away.
Lama Dorje was wearing jeans?
哦 是的 这真出乎意料
Oh, yes. It was quite startling,
because in life, he always wore robes.
当然 靠近在一起时 我有点不好意思
Of course, I felt very shy about approaching them,
but then I was lucky.
Three weeks ago...
Line up again!
A beautiful day.
Yes, it is.
I'm a Buddhist monk from Tibet. My name is Kenpo Tenzin.
Oh. Oh. Nice to meet you.

Also I teach astrology. Mostly astrology.
We Tibetans have a very advanced system of astrology.

My friend Lama Norbu has just arrived from Bhutan...
and has never been in America before.
He's a very important lama. He's come on a very special mission.
Oh, really? Well, would you like to come inside?
Yes. Yes, that would be very kind.
It will be very interesting for him.
This is Mrs. Conrad. This is Lama Norbu.
Please come inside.
It's a bit of a mess.
My husband built this house.
He's an engineer.
As you can see, we're still living out of boxes,
but at least the kitchen's done.
We only just moved in a few weeks ago.
有点空荡荡的 - 环境挺不错
Very empty. - Very beautiful.
