The Green Lama begins memorably with his sacred chant "Ohm, Mani, Padme, Ohm, The Green Lama Strikes for Justice. BONG!!! Paul Frees played young wealthy American Jethro Dumont, otherwise known as the Green Lama. He has returned to American after 10 years in Tibet, with a taste for justice and a sidekick the Tibetan Tulku, played by Ben Wright. Jethro's need for justice to see the road to justice leads him around the world. Whenever he is in trouble he chants his sacred chant "Ohm, Mani, Padme, Ohm, The Green Lama Strikes for Justice" and often the bad guys are intimidated. Based on the novels by Kendall Foster Crossen (pen name--Richard Foster), these shows are extremely rare.
