Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mipham Chokyi Lodro is the 14th and current (as of 2008) Shamarpa. He is also known as Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche. He is the second most important teacher of the Karma Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism after the Karmapa. The Karmapas are sometimes referred to as the Black Hat Lamas, referring to their Black Crown. The second Karmapa, Karma Pakshi, prophesied that 'future Karmapas shall manifest in two Nirmanakaya forms'. Later the third Karmapa Rangjung Dorje presented his principal student, Khedrup Drakpa Senge, a ruby-red crown which was an exact replica of his own Black Crown. The Karmapa explained that it symbolised their identical nature and so the lineage of the Shamarpas started.show more
