“My Reincarnation” on PBS Thursday night

 PBS’ documentary series POV (Point of View) is kicking off its 25th season with a screening of the film My Reincarnation, which follows the life and teachings of Tibetan Dzogchen master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche. It airs on most PBS stations at 10 p.m. Thursday, June 21.

Filmed over 20 years, Jennifer Fox’s documentary follows Namkhai Norbu’s long teaching career and his relationship with his Italian-born son Yeshi. Namkhai Norbu and his followers believe Yeshi is the reincarnation of Namkhai Norbu’s own master and expect him to follow in his father’s footsteps. Yeshi, though, wants to live a normal Western life in Italy.
