16th Gyalwang Karmapa

Slideshow of the 16th Karmapa. You may recognize Tulku Urgyen and his son Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche in the opening image (at the far right), which is repeated at 7:02. Tulku Urgyen appears again at 8:57 when they appear to have an audience with the late King of Nepal. Lots of other important lamas throughout as well, shame they didn't provide subtitles so we could identify them all. Enjoy!
(and thanks to Ani Jinba for the tip)

Freedom in Bondage

Adeu Rinpoche's autobiography is available now. 
Take a look inside at Amazon, and then buy it elsewhere. 
Highly recommended!

One of the last photos of Tulku Urgyen

With him is his attendant Dondrub Tara.
