Nowadays very popular, meditation is often presented as the key Buddhist method. However, it is actually only one means of this path of liberation. Karmapa Thaye Dorje sketches out the essential points to enter on this path in a way that is both modern and accessible for the Western audience: taking refuge, giving rise to loving-kindness and compassion and measuring the opportunity of this present existence and conditions. He taps into the Buddha's heritage and gives it a contemporary taste.
Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, is the leader and lineage holder of the 900-year-old Karma Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. The Karmapa was the first lama to reincarnate in Tibetan Buddhism, the first Karmapa being born in 1110, more than 250 years before the first Dalai Lama (1392). In 2019, Karmapa is thirty-six years old. He is married and has a baby boy, and his teachings reflect both the limitless wisdom and compassion of a timeless tradition, and the practical questions and challenges that we all face in life today.
