The 16th Gyalwa Karmapa, Rangjung Rigpe Dorje (1924-1981), was one of the 20th century’s greatest spiritual masters and was highly venerated by teachers and disciples in all Buddhist traditions. Following the 1959 Chinese invasion of Tibet, as head of the Karma Kagyü tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, he went into exile in India. 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 like few other teachers. 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 and social boundaries. Karmapa touched and inspired people from many different spiritual and religious traditions who were interested in inner development, including even those who feared or were critical of religion. His radiant compassion affected all who were fortunate enough to meet him. In this book Gerd Bausch traces the life of this great Kagyü master who effortlessly pushed the boundaries of the human imagination and provided people with a new outlook. 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 records the first-hand experiences related by many of the fortunate people who encountered this extraordinary master.
“This book provides a first-hand view into his exceptional qualities, as it describes his unceasing activities for the benefit of beings and his tireless endeavor to promote a close relationship between the different branches of Tibetan Buddhism.“ His Holiness the 41st Sakya Trizin
