Karmapa's Art

His Holiness the XVIIth Karmapa enjoys drawing, painting, and calligraphy, and is actually quite an accomplished visual artist. I have read that he does not consider himself as such, but states, "whatever I do, I give it my full attention." He has given pictures to friends and supporters, and in 2003, did a series of nineteen calligraphies to benefit construction at Karma Triyana Dharmachakra, that are available for purchase.
