    KARMAPA: H.H. Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa Urgyen Trinley Dorje KARMAPA: H.H. Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa Urgyen Trinley Dorje
    by Ken Holmes

    Many people have heard of the Dalai Lama, but fewer are aware of the unique role of the Gyalwa Karmapa, Tibet's very first 'reincarnate' lama. in June 1985, among the nomads of Eastern Tibet, the Karmapa took birth again for the 17tn time in this millennium, fulfilling the hopes and prayers of millions of Buddhists of the Kagyu tradition worldwide.
    Like so many of his fellow lamas, the previous Karmapa, the 16th, left Tibet at the time of the Chinese invasion in the l950s, bringing with him a treasury of Buddhist teachings which had been preserved for more than 800 years in the isolated beauty of 'the land of the snows'. Since that time these teachings have taken root in many countries around the world.
    After the 16th Karmapa's death in 1981 his followers had to wait until 1992 to discover his reincarnation. He was found exactly in accordance with instructions left in a letter he himself had concealed in an amulet given to one of his chief disciples, the 12th Tai Situpa. The Dalai Lama subsequently gave his offical approval and the 17th Karmapa was enthroned in his tradidonal seat at Tsurphu, not far from Lhasa, in Tibet.

  • DANCE OF 17 LIVES: The Incredible True Story of Tibet's 17th Karmapa DANCE OF 17 LIVES: The Incredible True Story of Tibet's 17th Karmapa
    by Mick Brown

    The extraordinary story of the exiled Tibetan teenager who has been hailed as one of the greatest spiritual leaders of the coming age.
    In January 2000, an Ambassador taxi twisted its way up the narrow road leading towards Dharamsala in the Himalayan foothills of northern India - the home in exile of the Dalai Lama. In this aging car was a fourteen-year-old boy: the 17th Karmapa, one of the most important figures in Tibetan Buddhism.
    The boy's arrival in Dharamsala was the culmination of a breathtaking escape. He had journeyed nine hundred miles across the Himalayas, in conditions of high danger, from the monastery in Tibet where he had lived since he was identified as the 16th reincarnation at the age of eight. His arrival took everybody by surprise: far-flung devotees, the world's press, the Chinese government, even the Dalai Lama himself, who was reminded of his own escape into exile more than forty years earlier.

Through wide-ranging research and interviews with key figures, including the Karmapa, award-winning journalist Terhune tells the riveting story of the Karmapas' often disputed incarnations.

  • KARMAPA, THE SACRED PROPHECY KARMAPA, THE SACRED PROPHECY
    Chogyur Lingpa / by Kagyu Thubten Choling

    While visiting Karma Monastery in Nangchen, Eastern Tibet, the great nineteenth century master Chogyur Dechen Lingpa was granted a prophetic vision of twenty-one incarnations of Karmapa, the supreme head of the Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. Chogyur Lingpa described his vision in detail to Karmai Khenchen Rinchen Tarjay, Supreme Abbot of Karma Monastery, who painted a representation of the prophecy on silk. Disciples of Chogjur Lingpa committed his oral description of the vision to writing, in a text later printed in woodblock at the renowned monastery of Mindroling.
