Summary Explores the arrival of Tibetan Buddhism in America through the story of Chogyam Trungpa, the brilliant 'bad boy of Buddhism' who fled his homeland during the Chinese Communist invasion. Trungpa arrived in the U.S. in 1970, and legend has it that he said to his students: 'Take me to your poets.' Trungpa eventually became renowned for translating ancient Buddhist concepts into language and ideas that Westerners could understand.
