Dadrön is having trouble conceiving a child and comes to visit Purdrön in her Barkor home to ask for advice. They explore different strategies: sponsoring a ritual, going to a special pilgrimage spot, modern medicine, and Tibetan medicine. Purdrön asks whether she went to the doctor's office to see if she has any health problems. Dadrön is sure she doesn't have all of these problems, and thinks about whether she can find some traditional way to get pregnant. Purdrön mentions that there is a monastery where she can go and pray for it. This clip was shot in the courtyard of the Barkor home of Dekyi's uncle, Lozang Yonten. Target vocabulary includes: to conceive, sterile, and barren.
