A great portrait of a disciple and his crazy wisdom Guru, Chogyam Trungpa. Witty and profound.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0975383604, Paperback)

John Perks was Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche's butler, attendant, and personal secretary for seven years. This is a book about their personal relationship--a book Trungpa Rinpoche asked the author to write. ________ Quotes about the book: "Ven. Seonaidh Perks played a crucial role in the creation of many of the Vidyadhara's institutions and his story of their mutual dance is hilarious, wild, shocking, and poignant. This book is a rare thing." Douglas Penick, author of "Gesar of Ling," Wisdom Publications. "It is the first intimate and authoritative account of Chogyam Trungpa, arguably the most important spiritual teacher in America's last century..." Kidder Smith, Professor of Asian Studies, Bowdoin College
