Karmapa Thaye Dorje To Find Reincarnation of Shamarpa

‘‘It is my solemn duty and responsibility alone to find the authentic incarnation of His Holiness Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche.’

His Holiness the 17th Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje has announced that he will find and recognize the next Shamarpa incarnation.

On 27th of October, birthday of the late Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche, Gyalwa Karmapa responded to the requests from Shamarpa’s brother Jigme Rinpoche and several hundred Karma Kagyu Buddhist centres around the world to take responsibility for this activity.
