Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche, 'the bad boy of Buddhism,' shattered Westerners' notions about how an enlightened teacher should behave.

Raised in the rigorous Tibetan monastic tradition, Trungpa fled his homeland during the Chinese Communist invasion of 1959. In Britain, his monk's robes blocked his students' understanding of Buddhism, so he renounced his monastic vows, eloped with a sixteen year-old and embraced western life.
