Rinpoche Trungpa was born and recognised  as an incarnate Tibetan Lama. To evade Chinese intimidation he left for India and thence the UK where he began the challenge of translating traditional texts and interpreting Buddhist insights so as to engage with the modern world. He subsequently pursued this more substantially in the US with considerable success through the programme of training in the Shambala path, poetry and drama, films and the notion of ‘Crazy Wisdom’.
