The enlightened individuals known as Karmapas have taught Buddhism in Tibet for nearly 900 years. Now to mark the occasion of his first visit to America, Heart Advice of the Karmapa presents some some of the insight and wisdom of the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, for the benefit of beings around the globe. Through dharma talks, interviews, poetry, and song, this youthful master offers timely teachings on an array of topics: appreciating the environment, applying loving-kindness and compassion, understanding karma, and enjoying harmony with other religious traditions. A selection of songs, essays, and poems of previous Karmapas is also included in this collection, providing a small glimpse into the rich legacy of these living Buddhas throughout the centuries. Heart Advice of the Karmapa celebrates the beginning of the 17th Karmapa's active presence in the West. May it contribute to the flourishing of this enlightened activity throughout the world.
