Such as the 17th Karmapa, is a powerful source of hope and inspiration, and a reminder that we must be the change that we want to see in the world. His words of wisdom provide deep insights into our modern world, symbolized her by the striking images gathered in this wonderful book.' - MATTHIEU RICARD, author of Happiness: A Guide to Developing Life's Most Important Skill 'The youthful Karmapa is emerging as one of the great spiritual teachers of the modern age, with a wisdom and facility to distill the traditional complexities of Buddhist philosophy into contemporary values and truths. The Future is Now will enrich and inspire people of all ages and beliefs.' - MICK BROWN, author of The Dance of 17 Lives; The Incredible True Story of Tibet's 17th Karmapa 'This book is an actual meeting with this great spiritual being. It is a feast for the eyes, a spur to the intellect, and a balm for the heart. As I moved from spread to spread of always significant and beautiful photography, I savored the aphorisms and found them moving, thought-provoking, and delightful. It is historic in a unique way. I totally recommend it.' - ROBERT THURMAN, Jey Tsong Khapa Professor of Buddhist Studies, Columbia University; President, Tibet House US One of the most important and revered figures in Tibetan Buddhism, the Karmapa shows how the wisdom of an ancient tradition resonates with our fast-paced, globally connected lives.
