          A Shining Story for Daunting Times

“Trungpa Rinpoche conquered obstacle after obstacle to bring us the teachings. For buddhists and non-buddhists alike, his journey over the Himalayas remains a constant source of inspiration as we find our way in a difficult world. Grant’s wonderful project brings this important story to light.”  – Diana Mukpo 

We recently marked the 60th Anniversary of Chögyam Trungpa’s escape from Tibet, on April 23, 1959.

For over a decade Grant MacLean has worked to bring the astonishing story to a wider audience. Much has been done, including the creation of the 2011 Touch and Go video and the publication of From Lion’s Jaws: Chögyam Trungpa’s Epic Escape to the West.

         From Lion's Jaws 

The story’s broad appeal is now clear. Among many others, it has inspired junior high students in Nevada and a Mormon book study group in Utah, while a Hollywood movie agent who had heard of the “great story” contacted Grant about rights.

What’s left to do:

·       Publish children’s version featuring Palya Washutsong, the 15 year-old girl on the escape.

·       Publish magazine article Pure Endurance: Hype and Authenticity in Tibet and the Antarctic featuring Palya Washutsong.

·       Complete and post YouTube clips on the story’s towering place in history.

·       With the story’s epic stature established, submit story to major publishers.

·       Ongoing promotion of story as documentary movie to directors, etc.

                    Please help to take this timeless story to the next stage.

Note that once expenses are covered proceeds will go to The Chronicles of Chögyam Trungpa and Chögyam Trungpa Legacy Projects.
