Story
Introduction
His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, is head of the Karma Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism. Although just 28 years old, the Karmapa is seen as the embodiment of wisdom and compassion and is regarded by many followers as a ‘living Buddha.’

People are drawn to the Karmapa’s public appearances and teachings because of his profound spiritual and meditative mastery and his transformational and enlightening effect on almost everyone who comes into his presence. The Karmapa brings a very positive and hopeful spiritual message for these turbulent times.
