The Mahasiddha and His Idiot Servant: Chogyam Trungpa’s Butler’s Bio

Via on Aug 28, 2008



Called the most important spiritual teacher of the 20th century, Chögyam Trungpa catalyzed the transmission of Tibetan Buddhism from his devastated country to the West. But 20 years after his death, he’s remembered as more of a rock star than a Buddhist meditation master. Mahasiddha, by Trungpa’s English butler, is the first personal bio out of the gates—and it’s a wild, sweet, behind-the-curtain ride.
