Music in the Sky: The Life Art and Teachings of the 17th Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje by Michele Martin
Music in the Sky: The Life Art and Teachings of the 17th Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje by Michele Martin

As the second millennium drew to a close, the Seventeenth Karmapa leapt from a roof of his monastery in Tibet. Evading his guards, the 14-year-old spiritual leader began a grueling, dangerous journey to India. The Karmapa’s picture has appeared all over the world since then. Yet his own words are hard to find. Now, for the first time in print, Music in the Sky offers a series of the Karmapa’s profound teachings, an extensive selection of his poetry, and a detailed account of his life and flight from his homeland. The amazing teaching and writing skills evident in this work – particularly in light of the fact that the Karmapa is still only 17 years old – will captivate readers.
