Summary
Journey through a contemporary Western Buddhist community in Boulder, Colorado, established by exiled Tibetan leader, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. With an emphasis on agency and creativity, follow the intriguing development of this community, as distinct and often incongruent ideas meet and engage. Let East meet West and the sparks fly. The transformative space between these different approaches takes on a central focus in this ethnography. Trungpa's interactions with scientists, activists, and poets offers insights into how cultural translators present Buddhist teachings in ways that resonate with Western students. There are potentials and pitfalls along the way. Findings indicate three vital areas of exchange, including science and practicality, social justice, and a more curious region under the less tangible rubric of mystery. Anthropological fieldwork has much to offer in exploring the intriguing and intricate nature of these exchanges, and in highlighting the value of both Eastern and Western forms of enlightenment. At the same time, there are unique skills required as the ethnographer winds through a complex and variable global setting
