Description About the author
Dzalendara and Sakarchupa
First and foremost of the Tibetan "tulkus" (reincarnate lamas), the seventeen incarnations of the Gyalwa Karmapa have long been famous as the guiding light of the Karma Kagyu tradition and erstwhile gurus of the emperors of China.
The 15th Karmapa once told Khyentse Rinpoche about ten former lives, mainly in other time-space dimensions, in a series of stories now known as "Sakarchupa".

Later, as a refugee in India, HH the 16th Karmapa one day stopped the jeep in which he was travelling and told the tale of one of his former incarnations in that very place, as a famous king called Dzalendara.

These eleven tales describe vividly the power and purity of the karmapa emanations and show us their determination to work skilfully for the welfare of all beings-human, animal and yet others-sometimes at the cost of their own lives.

Former lives of the Gyalwa Karmapa, Dzalendara and Sakarchupa, editor Ken Holmes, Dzalendara, 113 pp., $16.95
