Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche Straight Up!

Welcome to the original website of devotion (Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche Internet Resource Links), first established 1997 on the tenth anniversary of the Vidyadara’s paranirvana. At that time we began tracking any mention of Chögyam Trungpa on the Web with one rule of exclusion: “no book stores”.

No sugar coating. This is Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche Straight Up! — not necessarily what you'll find chronicled or in official biographies, although you'll find all of that here too. More than a mere collection of links, this is our world's reaction to one of the most precious teachers of our time. Now Trungpa Rinpoche’s powerful and practical proclamation of basic goodness and call for enlightened society is heard far and wide:

What Kind of Buddhist was Steve Jobs, Really? by Steve Silberman
I suspect that one of the things that Jobs found inspiring about Trungpa’s writing — beyond its bracingly direct tone and surgical deconstruction of the lies that prevent us from seeing things as they are — was his profound respect for artists, poets, and musicians, whom he saw as fellow warriors against delusion (which he called “neurosis,” adopting the lexicon of Western psychology.)

By Chögyam Trungpa's son Gesar Mukpo, 2009, 4 min
Tulku is a documentary film about young people caught between the modern culture they were born into and the ancient Tibetan Buddhist culture from which they were reborn. They are Western tulkus – all of them recognized when they were children as reincarnations of great Tibetan Buddhist masters. Filmmaker Gesar Mukpo is one of them. In this film, he sets out to meet others like him – young people struggling between modern and ancient, East and West.

Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche (1939 – 1987) lived on the cusp of these 2 major extremes. He practiced something called “Crazy Wisdom,” and lived a life that would be normal for many people, with the BIG exception that he was a LAMA! His list of controversies is loooong. Unlike your run of the mill Lama...

A Spirituality that Transforms by Ken Wilber
When Chgyam Trungpa Rinpoche, a great (though controversial) Tibetan master, first came to this country, he was renowned for always saying, when asked the meaning of Vajrayana, "There is only Ati." In other words, there is only the enlightened mind wherever you look. The ego, samsara, maya and illusion - all of them do not have to be gotten rid of, because none of them actually exist: There is only Ati, there is only Spirit, there is only God, there is only nondual Consciousness anywhere in existence. ¶ Virtually nobody got it...
