Mount Tamalpais, 1870, by Gilbert Munger

One day in the early 1970s, Trungpa Rinpoche decided to bury treasures on Mount Tamalpais. Here is Sam Bercholz’s account of that expedition.

As you’ll hear in the clip, a photograph was taken on that day (perhaps by George Holmes) of Rinpoche and friends on Mount Tamalpais. If you have this image or if you know who might, please let us know.

This clip is excerpted from a longer conversation, recorded in 2004, in Boston. Other voices heard on the recording belong to Hazel Bercholz and Walter Fordham.
Theme music: Balinese Monkey Chants. Chogyam Trungpa very much enjoyed these traditional Balinese chants. They were sometimes used to wake up participants at Magyal Pomra Encampment.
