Thank you Greg, this is wondrous.

Please note it is Shamarpa, not Sharmapa.

Shamarpa = ཞྭ་དམར་པ = Zhwa (hat) dmar (red) pa (man) on account of the hat the first Shamarpa was given by the third Karmapa Rangung Dorje.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shamarpa
Imagine a man who stands before a mirror; a stone strikes it, and it falls to ruin all in an instant. And the man learns that he is himself, and not the mirrored man he had believed himself to be.
