In his attempts to reach the fabled mountain of Wutaishan and meet with the bodhisattva Manjushri, Lodro battles the elements, braves the seductions of beautiful women, and encounters a magical mule.

Finding Manjushri was produced on a shoestring in a Tibetan refugee settlement in the stunning Himalayan region of northern India. Delivered with charm and humour, it is a delightful and uplifting tale that explores Tibetan Buddhism's unconventional concept of wisdom.
