Asia is generally known for peaceful wisdom. Some Tibetan masters who came to America first used crazy wisdom (Tibetan: yeshe chölwa) as method to change students habits. Crazy wisdom refers to unconventional or unexpected behavior as a manifestation of Buddha nature or as a teaching by a guru. Teachers such as 84 Mahasiddhas, Marpa, Milarepa. Chögyam Trungpa are said to have been associated with crazy wisdom. In this lecture Khenpo Jampa Rinpoche will share about this unique method of crazy wisdom.

He received his Degree of Acharya after nine years of study and was graduated as Khenpo in 2004 after thirteen years of study. He spent seventeen years studying with his main teacher, H.E.
