The 16th Gyalwa Karmapa

karmapa 16Rangjung Rigpé Dorjé (1924 – 1981)

The previous holder of the Kagyü Lineage did several long journeys to Europe, America and South-East Asia after his exile from Tibet in 1959. At the request of many westerners, as soon as 1975 he laid the foundation for the establishment of the Dharma on our continent and declared Dhagpo his European seat.

The Gyalwa Karmapa is a perfectly enlightened being, holder of the Kagyü lineage, one of the four main schools of Tibetan Buddhism. The teaching of that lineage, originating with the Buddha, has been preserved pure until today through an uninterrupted transmission from master to disciple.
