Taming Untameable Beings
Early Stories of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche with the Pygmies & Other Hippies
By Jim Lowrey

Padmasambhava—the lotus born—overcame cultural, political, and spiritual obstacles to bring the Buddhist teachings to Tibet from India in the ninth century. Likewise, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche had to conquer religious and cultural opposition to Buddhism—the secret teachings, in particular—to establish his community in North America in the twentieth century.

Jim Lowrey is an “old dog” Trungpa student, who, with the rest of his Pygmy hippie family went to Trungpa Rinpoche’s first public talk in Colorado in 1970 and connected with him immediately. As part of the early baby boom generation, Jim is emblematic of the sixties generation of war protesters, college dropouts, and hippies, who matured as the American born-again organic, locally grown, free-run middle class.
