My friend, who told me this guy was profound, suggested I look him up to put more meat on the intended healing which started with Lama Yeshe. That is kind of significant, methinks. Seeing as I was still… grumpy.
So I did. Here are some clips that relate to my demons. There are a bunch to look through, I’m sure yours are there, too.
CHOGYAM TRUNGPA SPEAKS ABOUT LONELINESS & LOVE
Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche on loneliness and love from the talk “Loneliness.” A short audio clip from talk six of the Vipashyana Meditation Seminar, September 12, 1974, Karme Choling, Barnet, Vermont.Chögyam Trungpa (February 28, 1939 – April 4, 1987) was a Buddhist meditation master and holder of both the Kagyu and Nyingma lineages, the eleventh Trungpa tülku, a tertön, supreme abbot of the Surmang monasteries, scholar, teacher, poet, artist, and originator of a radical re-presentation of Shambhala vision.
Recognized both by Tibetan Buddhists and by other spiritual practitioners and scholars as a preeminent teacher of Tibetan Buddhism, he was a major, albeit controversial, figure in the dissemination of Tibetan Buddhism to the West, founding Vajradhatu and Naropa University and establishing the Shambhala Training method.
Among his contributions are the translation of a large number of Tibetan texts, the introduction of the Vajrayana teachings to the West, and a presentation of the Buddhadharma largely devoid of ethnic trappings. Regarded as a mahasiddha by many senior lamas, he is seen as having embodied the crazy wisdom (Tib. yeshe chölwa) tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. Some of his teaching methods and actions were the topic of controversy during his lifetime and afterwards.
Shunyata: Emptiness, between that and this, beyond concept -Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Shambhala
Published on Mar 19, 2014
The idea you are awake. Absence of bullshit. Beyond conceptualized mind. Possibilities of all kinds. Clear fantastic space. “That moment where you catch yourself between that and this you begin to realize that who you are is not particularly certain on the spot, but you begin to catch yourself between two points, which is not really two points, it’s one point, which is split already in two points. You begin to realize there’s this or that possibilities of it, on the other hand there might be some.. But so what? Try to find out. And let has have a good time with that, whatever it is.”
Talk 7 from “Viewing and Working with the Phenomenal World” Seminar, Naropa Institute, 1st July 1976.

Surrendering Your Aggression -Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche –Shambhala
Published on Oct 17, 2010http://www.youtube.com/user/TrungpaRi…
Aggression not in the sense of that you’re angry, you keep on loosing temper. But aggression in the sense of fundamental obstacle. …surrendering, seems to be the only way to overcome aggression.

I think I need to spend more time with this. It might stick.
I wonder if there are any current teachers who have achieved the heights this fella and Lama Yeshe did. Or are just good teachers.
