Chogyam Trungpa describes "crazy wisdom" as an innocent state of mind that has the quality of early morning-fresh, sparkling, and completely awake. This fascinating book examines the life of Padmasambhava-the revered Indian teacher who brought Buddhism to Tibet-to illustrate the principle of crazy wisdom. From this profound point of view, spiritual practice does not provide comfortable answers to pain or confusion. On the contrary, painful emotions can be appreciated as a challenging opportunity for new discovery. In particular, the author discusses meditation as a practical way to uncover one's own innate wisdom.

In this very book he describes the history and eight significant aspects of the buddhist saint Padmasambhava, who is supposed to have brought tantric style buddhism to Tibet. Being 'tantric' does not mean - as often suggested - a wild and narcisstic sexualized lifestyle - but rather a highly disciplined practice that intends not to be arrested too much by the inscriptive qualities of visual images, concepts, words, our fantasies, and narratives.
But rather being trained to understand deeply the partly artificial or virtual quality of the logic of separation (the separating aspect of logical thinking) and learning to traverse on the boundaries of what is understood by conventional opinion as acceptable as well as what is (or would be) sane for individuals and even societies on a reality basis.
The concept of crazy wisdom questions our taken for granted beliefs and also takes the risk of being misunderstood - but that risk differs from the risks that many of our conventional cultural notions, traditions and habits induce, e.g. unsustainable externalization of negative effects, short-term thinking as well as a depressing lack of empathy...

You thought you were just going to be an ordinary Buddhist, perfect in your flaws, meditating now and again to calm your mind, meeting cuties at group meditation. That was until Trungpa, the ultimate bull in your beautiful China shop, came thrashing through. He kicked in the windows, broke your tea set, and turned around with this crazy smile on a nostrils-flaring face, and you knew things would never be the same.
Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche is an invaluable teacher in my life. If it were not for him I think I would likely stagnate all the time in my quest to be a good Buddhist. There is a kind of raw energy, openness, directness and contemporariness that I simply don't see elsewhere. He is not trying to be polite or proper, nor to make life easier or "less stressful". His books are not for anyone who is seeking relaxation or stress relief through meditation. He wants to wake you up, and in this text he is going to burn your house down just to make sure you get out of your bed.
This book contains powerful lessons for anyone wanting to awaken in Buddhist practice. For all such people, this material can shock you off of your cushion and into real-world interaction with the teachings. There is a kind of energy, a kind of just-do-it mentality, a you-can-do-it-ness, and a what-are-you-waiting-for-ness to this book, that makes me feel like I'm excited to be alive.
You're going to need actual instruction, for which I recommend finding a living teacher or some other texts by the same author, such as Training the Mind. But for those who are already into Buddhism and especially Tibetan Buddhism, you should read this book at least once --- kind of like that occasional dip into a cold mountain lake, you might just feel awake and alive in an I-can't-explain-it---just-see-for-yourself kind of way.
Read it if your want to be confronted with reality of life and are motivated to assimilate the path of waking up to your life as it unfolds moment by moment.
