ABSTRACT
The knowing young man on the cover of the book "The Dance of 17 Lives," by Mick Brown is a Karmapa, or great teacher, one of a line that goes back hundreds of years. Brown too finds his youthful serenity disconcerting, but it's challenged when a rival claimant to the Karmapa's position emerges. What follows is a story of intrigue and possible murder as ancient enmities are played out. Though the plot is labyrinthine and the narrative thread sometimes disappears, the tale is capably told and is especially recommended to superannuated hippies who once romanticised Tibetan Buddhist spirituality while ignoring the often savage rivalries behind it.
