The Lion's Roar - The Classic Profile of the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa
This is the masterful portrait of the late 16th Gyalwa Karmapa, the great Tibetan Buddhist master known as the Black Hat Lama. His line of successive reincarnations has its origins in the 13th century when it was the first to identify tulkus, reincarnations of Buddhist teachers. He is recognized as the embodiment of the teachings of the Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, one that traces its source through Tibet’s greatest teachers Milarepa and Marpa to India’s Naropa and Tilopa all the way back to the Shakyamuni Buddha himself.
