故事大纲

暑假,达娃回拉萨看望多年不见的姥爷和姥姥,正遇到姥爷病重去世。在看护病人和料理丧事的过程中,姥姥益西卓玛给她讲述了自己曲折的一生,讲述了五十年来,她与三个男人的爱恨恩怨……

丈夫加措年轻时候是个魁梧彪悍乐观幽默的个康巴赶骡人。在一次贩运的行程中,他的魂儿被洛嘎村会唱情歌的姑娘益西卓玛钩住了。洛嘎庄园的少爷贡萨早已看上了益西,并想长久地霸占她。加措不畏权贵,大胆地将益西抢走成婚,以他强壮的生命烈火与乐观幽默的风采,带给了益西一生少有的一段美好浪漫的时光。但是,加措放浪无羁居无定所的性格,使益西又回到了庄园少爷的身边。

五九年的政治风波中,少爷贡萨随十三世达赖的队伍逃走时,强迫带走了他们的小儿子,说是他的血脉。加措不能忍受益西长期欺瞒着自己去做少爷的情人,一怒之下,带着大孩子,回康巴老家去了。

几年过去了,当益西卓玛得知远方的丈夫加措重病的消息后,立即踏上千里寻夫的艰难征途。在她贫困交加,疾病缠身时,遇到了多年不见的喇嘛桑秋。

桑秋是益西卓玛生命中的第三个男人,是她永远的精神恋人。他们从小是邻居,青梅竹马一块长大。桑秋八岁入寺做了喇嘛,仍旧喜欢同益西卓玛玩,因为她是个金嗓子,唱歌又尖又亮。少年时,益西第一次跟桑秋学会了认字和唱情诗;在青年桑秋决心断绝尘缘献身佛业受戒后,从此二人僧凡隔绝。

这次相见时,正值文化革命中,寺院宗教被禁,桑秋也被迫还俗。儿时的情谊和患难中的相助,使他们处于灵与肉情与理的冲突熬煎之中。最后,桑秋陪伴着益西走过艰难路程,鼓励益西去与丈夫合好,表示自己仍将永远献身佛业。

……

达娃知道了姥姥的心事,在病重垂危的姥爷加措要求下,暗地联络,让早已回国定居、身任政协委员的老年贡萨来到家中与益西见面;让已成为格西大师的桑秋喇嘛来为自己转世念经。几十年的沧桑恩怨,几十年隔绝后的相见,令四位老人悲喜涕淋,感慨万千,激动不已。

在加措灵柩超渡、停放七日,他的灵魂和肉体即将离开人世的前夕,益西卓玛老人也伏在他身上安详地逝去了。

人生是个永远讲不完的话题。

益西卓玛老人一生的婚恋恩怨经历并不特别,在人类各民族各时代的生活中,常常都会遇到。但是,半个世纪以来西藏地区从农奴制到现代社会的巨大变迁;藏民族独特的宗教文化,对命运与轮回的信仰的人文精神,却使她的故事饱含了丰富独特的审美价值。
