Once brutally persecuted under the Soviet regime, Buddhism is re-emerging in Siberia. But with a past where Lamas were killed in prisons and temples burnt to the ground, there are few masters left to pass on the tradition. Whether or not the faith survives depends on an incarnate Tibetan Lama, scholar and meditational master who travels to remote villages to reawaken Buddhism.
