General definition (in Buddhism)

Chogyam Trungpa (February 1939 and – April 4, 1987) was a Buddhist meditation master, scholar, teacher, poet, artist, and a Trungpa tulku. Widely recognized, both by Tibetan Buddhists and by other spiritual practitioners and scholars, as a preeminent teacher of Tibetan Buddhism, he was a major figure in the dissemination of Tibetan Buddhism to the West, founding Vajradhatu and Naropa University and establishing the Shambhala Training method. His controversial career is characterized by his style of "crazy wisdom" by his Western followers. Physically weakened by years of heavy alcohol use, he died in terminal stages of heart failure at the age of 48.
