 W Dr. Nagasawa
 hen I first started writing this column, it was 1997, the year our daughter was born. Our son was 8 years old and besides adoring his little sister, his
big deal was the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Our son is a unique individual, as is his sister, and it has made our lives as parents an incredible journey. Our son has always walked his own path. I know this, for when as a child, he asked me to buy him the book Divine Comedy, which contained the poem Dante’s Inferno.
We later discovered that he practically had a photographic memory, which explained why he was later infatuated with Texas Hold’em. It’s also why today he has a command of at least five different languages, maybe more.
While my wife has raised our children as devout Catholics, one weekend when our son was 16, he asked me to drive him to a Tibetan temple in Nu‘uanu. I dropped him off and that became his weekly ritual. One evening when I picked him up, the senior Tibetan monk, Lama Rinchon, asked to speak with me. He marveled at our son’s dedication, cooking, cleaning and learning their rituals at the temple, especially at such a young age. He told me that our son was a Tibetan “tulku,” a reincarnated lama. I didn’t realize the significance of that until a year later, when the Dalai Lama was to be on Maui. Our boy convinced his school to allow him to attend as a field trip, which they did, provided I would be the chaperone for him and another student.
                                                       I managed to book us in the same hotel as the Dalai Lama, but told my son not to get his hopes up too high, that at best we might get a glimpse of this great man. We never got that chance but upon checking out, there was commotion that the Dalai Lama was making his way out of the resort. The lobby was filled with more security than for POTUS, so I positioned my son with his friend on the opposite site of a corridor the Dalai Lama would have to traverse to get to his awaiting vehicle caravan. I said I would snap a photo as the Dalai Lama passed in front of him. Just then, I saw an entourage of people walking from the lobby surrounding an elderly bald man in glasses wearing orange and maroon robes. It was the Dalai Lama. As he walked through the corridor, he suddenly stopped, parted his crowd of escorts and then went up and greeted my son. The Dalai Lama seemed to recognize him! It was then I realized what Lama Rinchon had told me.
                      This year on my birthday, our son received his Ph.D. in religious studies specializing in Tibetan Buddhism from the University of California Santa Barbara.
    It is a most auspicious achievement.
