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...

Re: The Way I See Trungpa Now

This is complete bullshit, like so much, if not every single thing, that Trungpa ever said. There was something else that Rinpoche talked about in this lecture that was very helpful to people, which was explaining the rationale for the uniforms that he was wearing more and more frequently. He had de...

Re: The Way I See Trungpa Now

When I set my task to figure out what the Nazis were all about 20 years ago, after I removed myself from my nihilistic, violent, male-centered Tibetan Buddhist cult, I never thought the answer would come back to Buddhism. I was just trying to find out why there is so much suffering in the world. Tha...

Re: The Way I See Trungpa Now

There is no doubt in my mind now that Trungpa is a complete traitor to whatever little was good in Tibetan Buddhism. He turned his lineage of Tibetan Buddhism into some horrible Japanese Zen mutation. Everything bad about Japanese Zen that Brian Daizen Victoria talks about, it's State fascism, is ta...

Re: The Way I See Trungpa Now

Allen Ginsberg thinks that murder might be on the list. Who would know better than Trungpa's closest student? He wonders what he would do if Trungpa asks him to murder Merwin, and confronts him with it, blaming the idea on the “monster” Trungpa who is, however, very nice. But he never follows throug...

Re: The Way I See Trungpa Now

And Trungpa was obviously not against violence and killing. If he was against violence and killing, he would not have supported the Shambhala myth. He would not have named his sons Ashoka and Gesar. He wouldn’t want to be a general leading his troops into battle. He wouldn’t want to be a king and ru...
