Sunday, May 27: Bill McKeever, acharya and early director of Karme-Choling, remembers his early times with the Vidyadhara and the center

by Barbara Stewart

It was Bill's second dathun. At the end of his first -- the first dathun altogether, in 197_ -- he had thought himself a hero, more than a hero, and was filled with dismay when Rinpoche said: "The real practice starts when you leave."

In the third week of his second one, he suddenly panicked. "What am I doing here?" he asked himself. "These people are full of shit. I've got to get away." He ducked out, ran to his car and, too impatient to go by the road, drove it right across the hayfields in his haste -- where, after the rains, it got stuck in a muddy ditch. He gunned it. The wheels spun. "I was stuck," . . . [Continued]

About the Chronicles

The Chronicles are a celebration of the life of Vidyadhara the Venerable Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, the incomparable meditation teacher, artist, poet, translator, vajra master, and social visionary who, more than any other person, is credited with establishing the genuine path of buddhadharma in the West. The stories, interviews, photos, and sound files on this site are expressions of love and gratitude from his students and others who knew him, and are a part of the Chronicles of CTR.

The larger goals of the Chronicles are to tell the story of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche's life in a detailed year-by-year account, to gather the oral history from those who knew him, and to preserve a record of his extraordinary legacy for future generations.

Our mission is to expand the general knowledge and understanding of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche's life and teachings. We hope that you enjoy the site. We are always interested in new stories and articles, and we're happy to receive ideas, comments, complaints, etc. from our readers. Please contact us at chronicles@chronicleproject.com
