A Flickr album devoted to His Holiness the 16th Karmapa shows photos of him taken in Europe, Asia, and the United States, including shots of him greeting the Pope, the mayor of New York City, and Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. There is also a photo of him stoically riding a Lego train at Legoland in Denmark, and another in which he is grinning happily with Disney characters like Mickey Mouse and Pluto. This set of photos shows his seriousness, playfulness, and kindness. Click here to view the photos on Flickr.
