Lions Roar : November 2006
SHAMBHALA SUN NOVEMBER 2006 41 INTRODUCTION by Steve Silberman “Born a monk, died a king.” That was Chögyam Trungpa Rin– poche’s summation of the arc of his life as one of the most influential Buddhist teachers of the modern era. Now, in a tender, passionate, and frank memoir called Dragon Thunder: My Life with Chögyam Trungpa, the woman who shared the most private moments of Rinpoche’s controversial life—his widow, Diana Mukpo—finally tells her version of their story. Diana married the former monk when she was 16, scandalizing her upper-class British family. To- gether they came to America, where Rinpoche founded Shambhala International and Naropa University, transplanting the most dynamic aspects of Tibetan Buddhism to American soil. “Ultimately I think that this is the essence of the Buddhist teachings: they are about how to live our lives, intimately, moment to moment,” she writes. “So I will try to share with you what it was really like to love such a person.” The student-teacher relationship is always an intimate and intense one, and who could be closer to the guru than the student who is also his wife? Diana Mukpo was married to the late Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, a figure of controversy whose genius surpassed convention, and undoubtedly one of the great Buddhist teachers of the twentieth century. She talks about her challenging, inspiring, and entirely surprising life married to the guru.
