Re: The Way I See Trungpa Now

In the "holy" business of recognizing tulkus, when a "high" lama recognizes a child as the incarnation of someone important, who cares who the parents are? In this case, as in many others, they didn't even need to see the child first, and give it tests. This proves that a lot more comes into this bu...

Re: The Way I See Trungpa Now

What difference does it make if you have a meeting in one place or another? Everything hinges on magic with these Shambhala people, who are NOT practicing Buddhism, but the ancient Bon religion of Tibet, to which Trungpa has more loyalty than to Buddhism BY FAR. The wisdom of the Pon tradition was v...

Re: The Way I See Trungpa Now

These stories completely put the lie to Trungpa's enlightenment. Whatever enlightenment is supposed to look like, I'm just SURE it's not supposed to look like this: Soon after the encampment ended, my doctor put me on bed rest because I was having some bleeding with my pregnancy. Rinpoche and I woul...

Re: The Way I See Trungpa Now

But then, having people know that the world is a place of suffering, would not be good for business. Better to have people think the world is "Happy, happy, happy." Otherwise, people might say, "To hell with it all. It's all complete bullshit." And then they wouldn't play the game. Can't have people...

Re: The Way I See Trungpa Now

Regarding vegetarianism and the Buddha, Tibetan lamas always say, "We had to eat meat! That's all we had, and it was cold," etc. But we know there's more to it when they come to the West and they still eat meat. I was a vegetarian when I became a Buddhist back in 1975, and was a vegetarian until my ...

Re: The Way I See Trungpa Now

I can hardly bare the Trungpa-Shambhala-speak everyone does at this point. Here's the last line of Dragon Thunder: "May all beings enjoy profound brilliant glory." What the hell does that mean? Is that when you pump yourself up with tons of delusion? Like "I'm so great; my world is so great." People...

Re: The Way I See Trungpa Now

This is very funny. You can see the pride here, Trungpa acting like any ordinary rich, tough-guy husband, pointing out to the other prominent man in the room that he too is successful and can give his woman everything she wants, because he has plenty of cash. He's generous, and has moved beyond mach...

Re: The Way I See Trungpa Now

If Diana never doubted Trungpa's motivation or approach to wearing military uniforms, and it made perfect sense to her, then why was she horrified when he showed up in his military uniform when she was riding in a show near Boulder? During the years that the school existed in Colorado, Marie Louise ...

Re: The Way I See Trungpa Now

Here is some advice I think is very very wrong. And this is after she kicked over a signboard and yelled at Osel Tendzin and his friends who were playing the piano and singing in a hotel in a display of what she considered unShambhala-like behavior. (She would never have done this if there were cons...
