I read a lot of Trungpa when I was younger. I also went to meditate with a local Shambhala chapter. When I finally decided to take refuge and get more serious about cultivating the Noble Eightfold Path, I made the choice to abandon the idea that booze/womanizing had anything remotely to do with wisdom or enlightenment.

Chogyam Trungpa most definitely seems like he was an interesting character. I like his robe. I wish I could wear something like that to work.

He was an "interesting character" all right.

Everybody is probably already aware of this but this seems quite relevant to the topic at hand.
