Crazy Wisdom

Overview

As the Western world becomes casually more and more accepting of and interested in the principles of Buddhism, this documentary examines the life and teachings of Chogyam Trungpa (1939-1987), a Buddhist monk who effectively bridged the gap between cultures, sometimes alienating himself from both, but more often bringing the two worlds closer together in harmony. ~ Cammila Collar
