He wrote the National Film Board of Canada’s prize winning two part series on the Tibetan Book of the Dead and the libretti for two operas: KING GESAR (Sony CD w/ Ma, Serkin, Ax et. al.) and ASHOKA'S DREAM (Santa Fe Opera) with composer, Peter Lieberson. He is the author of three books deriving from the epic cycle on the life of King Gesar of Ling: WARRIOR SONG OF KING GESAR, CROSSINGS ON A BRIDGE OF LIGHT, and THE BRILLIANCE OF NAKED MIND.

Top Customer Reviews
There is so much in this novel to ponder and discuss! It would be a great Book Club choice. And if you like your wisdom (crazy or otherwise) delivered in a finely wrought package...well, this is your book. It is beautifully written.
As Trungpa Rinpoche's brother-in-law, Penick had a front row seat in the serendipitous, magical and befuddling mandala that surrounded this great teacher. Trungpa, living in naked awareness, brought profund impact and whimsical humor everywhere he went, and Penick has beautifully evoked that sweet, powerful presence. This book can change your mind, as Trungpa did literally to hundreds of his students.
