Food for Thought: On the other dimension of compassion

When we talk about 
we talk 
in terms of being kind. 

But compassion is not 
so much being kind; 

it is being CREATIVE
a person up.

- Chögyam Trungpa

Chogyam Trungpa (1939 - 1987), the brilliant ‘bad boy of Buddhism,’ fled the invasion of Tibet, studied at Oxford, and shattered Westerners’ notions of how an enlightened teacher should behave. He was a Buddhist meditation master and holder of both the Kagyu and Nyingma lineages, 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. 

"Crazy Wisdom" - a film about the life and times of Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche is recently released and being shown in US and elsewhere. Here is a lovely recollection of Ram Dass (video) of his memory with Chogyam Trungpa at the screening of Crazy Wisdom at the Maui Int'l Film Festival

"Any perception can connect us to reality, properly and fully. What we see doesn't have to be pretty, particulary; we can appreciate anything that exists. There is some prinicple of magic in everything, some living quality. Something living, something real, is taking place in everything." - Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche
