Riding a Huge Wave of Karma

An extensive and detailed study of the life and teachings of the Tenth Karmapa, Chosying Dorje (1604-1674), one of the greatest artists and religious leaders of seventeenth century Tibet. His early life was far from easy and his unorthodox lifestyle freed him to devote more time to his artistic pursuits.

Among the many lineages of reincarnated lamas that have flourished in Tibet, the Karmapas were the oldest. And among the seventeen Black Hat Karmapas that have so far graced our world, few have led lives as diverse and fascinating as the Tenth Karmapa.

This book is based on the author's academic thesis.
