Synopsis

Chogyam Trungpa, the brilliant 'bad boy of Buddhism,' fled the invasion of Tibet, studied atOxford, and shattered Westerners' notions of how an enlightened teacher should behave. Was it crazy wisdom when he renounced his monastic vows, eloped with a sixteen-year old aristocrat, openly drank alcohol, and had intimate relations with women students? Was it crazy wisdom when he founded a military order to dismantle aggression? Or was it when, to counter the materialism he saw infecting the world, he worked tirelessly to build an 'enlightened society,' based on compassion and courage? The film presents a direct experience of Trungpa, and stories from his wife and students, including best-selling author Pema Chodron and poet Allen Ginsberg, as well as colleagues and critics like American guru Ram Dass and eminent scholar Robert Thurman.
