He is inseparable from Karmapa, who is also an emanation of Chenrezig.

When Chenrezig was about to attain Buddhahood, he made a vow to remain a Bodhisattva and benefit all sentient beings until each and every one attained liberation from samsara. Only then would he enter Buddhahood. To ensure this, he also said that should he ever break this vow, his body would shatter into a thousand pieces. (read more)

In December or January of every year, hundreds of disciples of the four schools of Tibetan Buddhism come together to share aspiration prayers in holy places throughout India, in what is called the Kagyu Monlam. This is one of the most significant events in the Buddhist calendar.
