When the chosen does not choose

From the Guardian, a story of a reluctant lama. I like this bit:
By 18, he had never seen couples kiss. His first disco experience was a shock. "I was amazed to watch everyone dance. What were all those people doing, bouncing, stuck to one another, enclosed in a box full of smoke?"
From wikipedia, a partial historical analogue from the theosophical world.

Hat tip (on the lama): marginal revolution
