His Holiness Gyalwang Karmapa

Soon after setting up their home in the new location, followers of the 16th Karmapa came to that valley pursuant to the secret instructions of the 16th Karmapa contained in hisletter of prediction. After the death of the 16th Karmapa, it became clear that these predictions applied to his successor. Furthermore, the 19th Century master Chogyur Lingpa made a number of predictions about the lives of the Karmapas, and for the 17th Karmapa, Chogyur Lingpas predictions matched the details of His Holiness birth. Since these predictions were to be fulfilled in themselves without recognition by any other master, it is traditionally said that the Karmapa is self-recognized."
