A book about HH the 16th Karmapa's life
This website is dedicated to the life of one of the greatest masters of the 20th century: the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa (1924-1981), former head of the Karma Kagyu order of Tibetan Buddhism.
It also contains information concerning the book about his life which I started in 2010.
I hope you enjoy the accounts, articles and photos which little by little will be published on this site. You can subscribe my blog where I will inform about any new posts on this website and the progress of the biography. There is also a facebook page.
With very best wishes
