Description
 
The 16th Gyalwa Karmapa, Rangjung Rigpe Dorje (1924-1981) was one of the 20th century's greatest spiritual teachers and disciples in all Buddhist traditions. Following the 1959 Chinese invasion of Tibet, as head of the Karma Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, he went into exile. From his new home in Sikkim, as well as during his later extended voyages to the West, the Karmapa contributed immensely to the worldwide flourishing of the Buddha's teachings. With his warmth of heart, his spiritual power, and not least his openhearted humor, he moved people to their deepest core and overcame all cultural, religious, and social boundaries. His radiant compassion affected and inspired all who were fortunate enough to meet him.

In this book, Gerd Bausch traces the life of this great Kagyu master who effortlessly pushed the boundaries of human imagination and provided people with an entirely new perspective. Literally day and night, the 16th Karmapa tirelessly assisted everyone who asked for his advice and help, welcoming all with infinite generosity. In addition to accessing other contemporary sources, Bausch conducted close to eighty interviews through which he records the first-hand experiences related by many of the fortunate people who encountered this extraordinary master.
