Little Lhamo was a rambunctious child. Fearless, the wise gurus of his province described. The ruler of his people had recently moved onto a higher plane, and the remaining leaders were searching for a decent replacement. And when the corpse of the great leader moved his head to face to the southeast, all the wise men redoubled their search into the Quinghai province.
Sera Lama, the leader of one search group, decided to see the fearless boy for himself, and he posed as a servant, and sat alone in the kitchen and waited for the boy to approach. He held in his hand a rosary that belonged to the great leader, and when the boy approached his spied it and said “That’s mine.” Sera told the boy he could have the rosary if he could guess his name, and the boy cried “Sera Lama, Sera Lama.” and he spoke to the man in a language his mother had never heard before, and Sera Lama knew this boy was the next incarnation of Avalokitesvara, the Buddha of compassion, and was the fourteenth Dalai Lama.
