• Police in India have filed charges against the Karmapa Lama after about $1.4m (£900,000) in cash was found in January at his monastery in Dharamsala.
  •  They allege the cash was being held in violation of foreign exchange rules.
  • The Karmapa heads one of the four sects of Tibetan Buddhism and is expected to play a prominent spiritual role in the event of the death of the Dalai Lama.
  • The Karmapa is seen as the third most important figure in Tibetan Buddhism after the Dalai Lama and the Panchen Lama.
  • He fled Tibet in 1999 and arrived in Dharamsala - in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh - which is the seat of the Tibetan government-in-exile.
