    1. This book offers a very lively reading with plenty of amazing anecdotes and information about the marvelous everyday life of these great Tibetan masters Well researched and beautifully written full of magnificent photographs and watercolors , it is profound and accessible at the same time Anyone interested in Tibet and its form of Buddhism will want to include this book in their must read list A book I would strongly recommend for the Buddhist and non Buddhist alike.Of all the books I have read [...]

    2. This is a lively tour through the seventeen emanations of the Karmapa, the head of the Kagyupa lineage of Tibetan Buddhism I think it omits the confusion about who is the Seventeenth Karmapa and didn t mention the recent troubles with the Indian government and supposed misappropriation of funds I recommend this book to anyone interested in Tibetan Buddhism and the process of reincarnation.

    3. This is one of two books on the history of the Karmapas This one is the most complete than double the size and includes the 17th If you are at all inspired by any of the Karmapas, this lineage history is so inspiring for any practitioner or scholar.

    4. Inspiring, short biographies of the Karmapas The book has a good introduction to Tibetan Buddhism.I think it could be at least 2 times as long I often found myself wanting a detailed account of many of the events.
