Description

When a Tibetan Buddhist leader dies, he leaves clues as to where he will next incarnate, so that he can be found and trained to take up his duties again. When the 16th Karmapa, the spiritual leader of the Karma Kagyu lineage, died in 1981, the search for his successor soon began. This is the story of the politics and intrigue involved in finding the reincarnated King of the Yogis, the daring rescue to free him from occupied Tibet, and the resulting uproar that made headlines around the world.
