The autobiography of the late Trungpa Rinpoche, one of the most innovative and original teachers to bring Tibetan Buddhism to the West. Here he recounts his recognition as a reincarnated master at the age of two, his training as a lama and his harrowing escape from the Communist invaders of Tibet at the age of nineteen, in 1959.
As the eleventh in the teaching lineage known as the Trungpa tulkus, he underwent a period of intensive training in meditation, philosophy, and the fine arts. His account of his experiences as a young monk, his duties as the abbot and spiritual head of a great monastery, and his moving relationships with his teachers offers a rare and intimate glimpse into the life of a Tibetan lama. In the epilogue he describes his emigration to the West, where he encountered many people eager to learn about the ancient wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism.
