Screening and discussion of “Crazy Wisdom: The Life and Times of Chogyam Trungpa”
4600 Connecticut Ave NW
Washington, DC 20008
Crazy Wisdom is the first film to explore the life and “crazy wisdom” of Chogyam Trungpa, ‘the bad boy of Buddhism,’ who brought Tibetan Buddhism to the West. Chogyam Trungpa, a renowned Tibetan Buddhist leader, shattered notions about how an enlightened teacher should behave when he renounced his monk’s vows & eloped with a sixteen-year-old aristocrat. Twenty years after his death, Trungpa’s name still evokes admiration and outrage. What made him tick? And just what is enlightenment, anyway?
