Description Contents
Motivated by the purest of compassion, the Gyalwang Karmapas have taken rebirth continuously since the eleventh century. The present seventeenth incarnation, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, was born in Eastern Tibet in 1985. Seven years later, he was recognized by a letter of prediction and brought to Tsurphu Monastery, the seat of the Karmapas in Tibet. Here, he received a traditional education in practice and philosophy, and at the turn of the millennium, he journeyed over the Himalayas to India where he presently resides. Known for his clear and direct teaching style, the youthful Karmapa radiates the brilliance of his heritage. Traveling the Path of Compassion, his commentary on The Thirty-Seven Practices of a Bodhisattva connects this revered text with our daily lives and our deepest aspirations.

Buddhadharma Book Briefs November 23, 2009
Reviewer: Alexander Gardner  
Traveling the Path of Compassion (KTD, 2009) will help introduce many Western readers to the Seventeenth Karmapa, a charismatic young Tibetan lineage holder who is sometimes mentioned as the possible successor to the Dalai Lama in his capacity as the international face of Tibetan Buddhism. It is a fitting choice for a lama of his stature to teach on the Thirty-Seven Practices of the Bodhisattva, a beloved Tibetan instruction by the fourteenth century lama Ngulchu Thogme on the proper attitude and behavior of a person intent on cultivating compassion in order to liberate all beings from samsara. <br>The Karmapa has divided the thirty-seven verses of the text into seventeen chapters that address topics such as emptiness, renunciation, and taming the mind. While there are many English translations and commentaries of Ngulchu Thogme’s text, the Karmapa’s commentary deserves attention for the elegance of his explanations. It’s the work of a teacher whose impact will likely be felt for decades to come.
