People with negative minds cannot even recognize Highly Realized Beings such as The Black Hat and The Red Hat Lamas.
The people who had held the political powers for centuries caused the pain, suffering and controversies we experience even today.
Understanding these interdependencies with the help of the facts presented in this book can make our world today a better place.
On top of these all, knowing more about the lives of The Black Hat and The Red Hat Lamas can help us to understand how genuine and precious they are thus in turn can help their students to develop more openness towards them and this way receive the benefit of their blessing more, to develop quicker and further on the path towards liberation and enlightenment and so experience a much more meaningful life for the benefit of all beings...
The biography is beautiful and inspiring. The 10th Karmapa had to surmount many obstacles during his life time but he was definitely a great bodhisattva. Just by reading his writings I can understand that he was a very humble person and a very powerful teacher. I also felt very moved to see the connection between Karmapa and Shamarpa. As always, biographies of great Tibetan masters have the power to change your perspective in life and in your mind. I recommend this biography to anyone interested in the Karma Kagyu history.
Once the decision to be a bodhisattva is taken - there is no going back. This book shows the ultimate choice.
Such a huge inspiration.
Enjoy the reading or readings - as I am sure it will be a repeat read over the years.
