After being killed by his parents (a corrupt Pentecostal preacher and his wife), Obadiah Archer returned to life, thirsty for vengeance. He found his way to a Tibetan Buddhist monastary, where he was raised from the age of 11 until adulthood.

Archer became a seeker of truth and righteousness. Although he was not a clergyman in the traditional sense, he became known as prophet and had a very significant role in the spiritual and religious life of the Buddhist order that raised him.
