  • In his preface, Hayward states that the purpose of this book was to write a personal account of his time with Tibetan Buddhist teacher Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and it follows in chronological order from his first meeting to becoming one of Trungpa's closest students to Trungpa's death in 1987. The book is filled with many interesting stories about Trungpa, including some accounts by others, and serves as a useful companion piece to Diana Mukpo's memoir of her marriage to Trungpa, Dragon Thunder [...]


  • Hayward's affectionate Rinpoche tales are entertaining and he takes us close to the guru, but sometimes it feels like he is stuck on wanting Rinpoche to love and accept him. He occasionally comes off as feeling rejected and depressed. I don't think Hayward's account of his life with Rinpoche will inspire others to learn dharma, on the otherhand, the book seems honest.If there is Buddha nature - and I believe thee is - and if there is no difference between self and guru and world - "coemergent wi [...]


  • While this book did provide some good background on Rinpoche and on Shambhala in general, I got the distinct feeling that I wasn't so much getting to understand the man himself but rather the idealized image of Rinpoche as crafted by Mr. Heyward. While I grant that in the introduction, the author does not represent this as anything more than his recollections and personal experiences with Rinpoche, the feel of the book is more like hagiography than biography.Still, I am glad I read the book. Des [...]


  • Of all the non-Zen Buddhist teachers, Trungpa is the one I've read the most, and I've always admired his Shambhala teachings the most of anything he's done; they seem the most Zen-like. I love his teachings but have always found his life a bit of a puzzle (he was known for drinking excessively and sleeping with his students, though he was completely open about his behavior). Jeremy Hayward is a teacher in his lineage, and one of his early students; in this memoir he gives us his take on Trungpa [...]


  • This is more of a personal history of Chogyam Trungpa's Shambhala sangha than a memoir. It is interesting to see the way these ideals of a peaceful society unfolded.
