Crazy Wisdom: The Life and Times of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

Chogyam Trungpa is sometimes referred to as "the brilliant bad boy of Buddhism." Having fled the Chinese invasion of Tibet in 1949, he subsequently studied at Oxford, mastering the subtleties of the English language and mindset, and went on to shatter Westerners’ notions of how an enlightened teacher should behave.

To gain a sense for the flavour of this documentary, we invite you to view the trailer on the official Crazy Wisdom website. You will also find an expanded summary of the film's content, photos and other interesting material on the site.

We will view the film from 7:00-8:30 pm, and enjoy tea together thereafter.

All are welcome. The film showing is free, though donations are welcome.
