The 5th Karmapa Dezhin Shegpa (1384-1415) prophesied events that happened
hundreds of years after his time; a powerful example being the current Dalai
Lama’s fall from power and the subsequent bloodshed that swept through Tibet. When the Chinese communist invasion of Tibet
happened in 1959, the Dalai Lama escaped to India. He was forced to leave his people, many of whom died tragically.
These are now facts of history. In addition, Karmapa Dezhin Shegpa’s foresight
into today’s problems in the Karma Kagyu is particularly relevant in our time.
