Diamond Highway: A Tibetan Buddhist Path in America by Tony Cape

Chogyam Trungpa was among the most influential and controversial Tibetan Buddhist lamas to live and teach in the West until his death in 1987. Tony Cape became his devoted student in the mid-70s and eventually one of his personal attendants. Diamond Highway is a loving tribute that recounts the story of Trungpa's community from this privileged viewpoint, without flinching from questions surrounding his teacher's drinking and sexuality. From the post-beatnik milieu of Boulder's Naropa Institute to the high ritual of Trungpa's cremation ceremony, Diamond Highway tells the fascinating story of the author's relationship with his extraordinary teacher, with his American successor Osel Tendzin, and with his eldest son Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.
