Trumoda Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Chögyam Trungpa (Wylie: Chos rgyam Drung pa; March 5, 1939 – April 4, 1987) was a Tibetan Buddhist monk who escaped from Tibet to India and went to Oxford University in England. While in England, he married one of his 16 year old students and he got so drunk, he had an automobile collision into a joke shop in Scotland. Trungpa took the title “Rinpoche” because he had some serious ego problems (the title “Rinpoche” means “precious one”, and is only really used for kings), as there were Buddhist monks that enabled him and fed his ego while he was in Tibet. He formed the Vajradhatu Buddhist organization in America and created several retreat camps in the United States and across the world. He took roots in Boulder, Colorado for many years, forming a huge Shambhala community and creating Naropa University for the purpose of lending some sort of credence to his teachings.
A reddit user mentioned, "Trungpa died in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1987 due to some serious drug use and while his wife denies it, his personal friend and physician confirmed it on the Chögyam Trungpa Chronicles. Trungpa was known to be a heavy alcoholic, giving lectures when he was drunk off his ass and it was likely that he also did cocaine."
