The Dance of 17 Lives; The Incredible True Story of Tibet's 17th Karmapa.

by Mick Brown - £12.99  Bloomsbury Paperback (2005)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780747568711 | ISBN 10: 0747568715

In January 2000, a taxi twisted its way up the narrow road leading towards Dharamsala in Northern India - the home-in-exile of the Dalai Lama. Inside was a fourteen-year-old boy, the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, whose arrival was the culmination of a thrilling escape, risking capture and death, which had brought him 900 miles. The Karmapas are the oldest line of identifiable reincarnates in Tibet and when the 17th suddenly appeared the global media, the Chinese government, and his devotees around the world were all taken by surprise. Fascinated by this charismatic young man, Mick Brown travelled to Dharamsala and was drawn into the labyrinthine - not to say surreal - web of intrigue surrounding the 17th Karmapa, hearing stories of miracles and rumours of murder, political conspiracy and the settling of centuries-old scores. Amd at the centre of it is the extraordinary figure of one of the great spiritual teachers of the coming age.
