Tulkus just aren't what they used to be

Ever wondered how a Mongolian prince, a 'runaway streetkid and dancefloor wizard', an ex-disciple of Tsongkhapa, a fashion model, ex-abbot of Ganden, a stand-up comedian with an American accent and a tulku would be all bundled into one? (No, me neither.) However, he does exist. Dubbed "the neon-lama" Tsem Tulku Rinpoche is, well, unusual.

From his bio: "He is heavily sought after for divinations on black magic, business, relationships. He has acquired a reputation among the successful business circles for his extremely accurate divinations and is consulted by a bevy of businessmen who will not make major decisions before consulting Rinpoche." Every household should have one.
