The Classic Portrait of the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa.


The Lion's Roar

This is the masterful profile of the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa, the great Tibetan Buddhist master known for the Black Crown ceremony. His line of successive reincarnations has its origins in the 13th century when the first Karmapa, Dusum Khyenpa, left a letter predicting the birth of his next incarnation, or tulku, the first of many Tibetan Buddhist teachers to be identified this way.

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 Naropa and Tilopa, all the way back to the Shakyamuni Buddha himself.
