Publisher Marketing: 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 sixteenth Karmapa, head 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 him, not a simple task as it turned out, as told by a Western observer.
