Fred de Sam Lazaro, who does tremendous work traveling the globe covering the under-covered stories in his partnership with St. Mary’s University in Winona, Minn., didn’t have to go very far to find who some believe is the reincarnation of the senior lama who died nine years ago.
He’s fourth-grader Jalue Dorje and he lives in Columbia Heights.
Fred’s story appeared last evening on the PBS NewsHour.
[Update: I am informed that Sam’s operation is now based out of the University of St. Thomas]
