About the Author

Shamar Rinpoche is the Fourteenth Shamarpa, Mipham Chokyi Lodro. The Shamarpa or “Red Hat Lama of Tibet” is Tibetan Buddhism’s second oldest reincarnate lineage after the Karmapa’s lineage. He is in a direct line of descent from the Sixth Shamarpa who figures prominently in this book as the guru of the Tenth Karmapa. Born in 1952, Shamar Rinpoche was recognized by the Sixteenth Gyalwa Karmapa in Tibet in 1957 and, after their escape to India, was enthroned as the Fourteenth Shamarpa in 1963. Following many years of study with Buddhist scholars, he began in 1980 to spread the Buddha Dharma, teaching at Karma Kagyu centers throughout the world. In 1996 he started to organize Bodhi Path Buddhist Centers, a network of centers on five continents that practice a non-sectarian approach to Buddhism. Shamar Rinpoche has published two previous books. Creating a Transparent Democracy: A New Model (2006) is the first book written about democracy by a Tibetan Buddhist teacher. It lays out a framework for establishing a genuine democratic system of governance that promotes the welfare and prosperity of a country’s citizens. In The Path to Awakening (2009), Shamar Rinpoche insightfully elucidates Chekawa Yeshe Dorje’s Seven Points of Mind Training. The Path to Awakening is both a guide to living a fulfilling life as a Buddhist and a comprehensive manual of meditation techniques.
