Living Buddha- Movie about finding 17th Gyalwa Karmapa

Post by malalu on Mon Feb 23, 2009 3:21 am

This is a great documentary behind the story behind the search for the reincarnation of the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa in Tibet.

"Living Buddha" by Clemens Kuby is the real life story of the reincarnation of one of Tibet's greatest and most revered spiritual teachers, the Gyalwa Karmapa. The Karmapa is the traditional head of the Kagyu Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. Gyalwa Karmapa died in 1981 in Chicago and was born again 1985 in Tibet. Each successive Karmapa left details of their future rebirth, prophesying such things as the date and circumstances of their birth, even the names of their future parents.

When the previous Gyalwa Karmapa died, he had already entrusted his prediction letter and it was on this basis that a successful search was made to find his reincarnation. Kuby follows the search party and documents each successive stage up to the time of the 17th Karmapa's first public blessing at the age of eight. He was identified as Ogyen Trinley Dorje, the long awaited second son in a poor nomadic family in a remote area of eastern Tibet.
An exploration of Tibet as seen through the eyes of historian/documentarian Clemens Kuby. Central to the film is the consecration of the 17th Karmapa, who according to Tibetan belief, is the reincarnation of Buddha and plays a supremely important role alongside Dalai Lama.

A 12 part series...

Thank you so much Malalu!
I was planned to send my DVD about Karmapa La to India but then my last posts (parcels) didn't arive there. So I decided to bring it later to avoid it should be lost. Now by the grace of you I can send it right now for Losar! Very Happy

Very very grateful, muni. _/\_
