Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche is second to Gyalwa Karmapa in the spiritual hierarchy of the Karma Kagyu School of Tibetan Buddhism. The first Shamar Rinpoche, Khedrup Trakpe Senge (1283-1349), was the principal disciple of the 3rd Karmapa, Rangjung Dorje.
His second incarnation, Kacho Wangpo, received the Red Crown from the 4th Karmapa, Rolpe Dorje, an exact replica of Karmapa’s Black Crown. With the Red Crown, the Karmapa bestowed on him the name of "Shamarpa - The One with the Red Crown." Since then, Karma Kagyu texts speak of two Karmapas, the Black Hat and Red Hat Karmapa, always alternating as teacher and student throughout the centuries.
The present, 14th Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche Mipam Chokyi Lodro was born in 1952 in Derge, Tibet. Due to the difficult political situation in Tibet the nine years old Shamarpa left with the 16th Karmapa for Sikkim, where he settled and began to study under the Karmapa’s guidance. Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche received all the teachings and transmissions of the Karma Kagyu school from the 16th Karmapa in the Rumtek Monastery in Sikkim. After the 16th Karmapa’s death Shamar Rinpoche took over the administration of the Karmapa International Buddhist Institute, the Buddhist university in New Delhi, India. In 1994 he officially recognized Trinley Thaye Dorje as the 17th Karmapa.
Shamar Rinpoche spends most of his time teaching Buddhism in various parts of the world.
