The History of the Sixteen Karmapas of Tibet by Karma Thinley
The History of the Sixteen Karmapas of Tibet by Karma Thinley, Foreword by Chogyam Trungpa, Introduction by Reginald Ray

The Karmapa is the spiritual leader of the Karma Kagyu sect of Tibetan Buddhism. Rangjung Rigpe Dorje was the sixteenth of the line which began with Dusum Khyenpa, the first Karmapa, in the twelfth century. Karma Thinley presents the biographies of the first sixteen Karmapas, based on his translations from numerous Tibetan sources. These biographies are not only histories of the training and teaching of these great teachers; they are also inspirational texts used to cultivate devotion in the practitioner. Accompanying the text are sixteen line drawings, based on the thangka paintings of the Karmapas at Rumtek monastery, the seat of the present Karmapa.
