The 17th Karmapa Trinlay Thaye Dorje was born in Tibet on 6th of May 1983 as a son of Mipham Rinpoche, a great Lama from Nyingma lineage, and Dechen Wangmo, who comes from a family with royal ancestry.
In 1994 he and his family managed to escape from Tibet to Nepal and then to India. The young Karmapa arrived in New Delhi in March 1994 , where he was greeted by a welcoming ceremony led by H.H. Shamar Rinpoche who formally recognized him as the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa.
The 17th Karmapa was given the name of Trinlay (meaning Buddha activity) Thaye (limitless) Dorje (unchanging). Since then the Karmapa has been living in the Karmapa International Buddhist Institute (KIBI) where he received both a traditional as well as a Western education. In 1997, H.H. the 17th Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje was officially invited by the Bhutanese royal family and received with full honours. The three-hour drive from the Bhutanese border to the capital Thimpu took seven hours as thousands of well-wishers greeted him along the way. In October 1999 the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa embarked on his first international teaching tour and gave initiations to several thousand people in Singapore and Taiwan. The beginning of the new millennium was marked by his first historic visit to the West. In Dusseldorf, Germany, the Karmapa was enthusiastically received by 6,000 students from several hundred Diamond Way Buddhist centers from over 30 countries. In the summer of 2003, H.H. the 17th Karmapa conducted his first official program in the United States, giving a series of empowerments and teachings.
In December 2003, after completing his formal education, the 17th Karmapa was declared “Great Tantric Master” (skt. Vajracharya). The 17th Karmapa Thaye Dorje currently resides in Kalimpong, India, where he continues his spiritual training and Western education. He represents the Karma Kagyu school of Diamond Way Buddhism and is a spiritual leader of all the centers founded by Lama Ole Nydahl.
