Buddhadharma : Fall 2007
buddhadharma| 53 |fall 2007 1970s and legally established his ownership. None of his written or recorded teachings can be repro- duced without his wife’s permission, at least until the copyright runs out. Suzuki Roshi’s copyrights were passed on to his family by default, because, though he held those rights, the recipient was not specified. “For all intents and purposes, Suzuki Roshi’s copyright reverted to his family,” says Michael Wenger. And for the most part, Zen Cen- ter has been overseeing the use of Suzuki Roshi’s copyrighted material. Remembrances In addition to official dharma archives and web- sites, the digital revolution has spawned indepen- dent websites that carry out a new kind of archival activity. These websites, often labors of love, give us a highly personal look at teachers, events, and teachings that augments the official record. Crooked Cucumber and The Chronicles of Chög- yam Trungpa websites are important examples of collections of personal recollections and opinions that maintain the intimate quality and immediacy of the teachings. David Chadwick initially started crookedcuke. com as a vehicle for his biography of Suzuki Roshi, Crooked Cucumber, but the project mushroomed to include interviews with former Suzuki Roshi students, sangha news, points of interest, and opinions. “There’s a wide spectrum of voices, and I think it’s good to have a complete, unbiased pic- ture of Roshi as a human being,” says Chadwick. “How can you aspire to enlightenment yourself if you expect enlightenment to make you more than human?” The Chronicles of Chögyam Trungpa website also began as a vehicle for a book. “I originally wanted oral histories, firsthand accounts of peo- ple’s experiences with Chögyam Trungpa, so that I could build a book,” says Walter Fordham. “I view people’s stories as something much greater than nostalgic reminiscing. Trungpa Rinpoche’s teach- ings are illustrated by and accessible through these personal stories.” Now audio interviews, print interviews, event coverage, online discussions, a readers’ forum, and links attract 10,000 visits a month. Currently, 350 members help to support the website through donations. The embryonic Chögyam Trungpa Legacy Project takes this dynamic view one step further, emphasizing the social aspect of Trungpa’s dharma legacy. Chögyam Trungpa promoted a variety of forms and introduced them to his students as vehicles of enlightenment. Theatre, kyudo, design, bugaku, photography, poetry, sailing, dressage, calligraphy, tea ceremony, decorum and etiquette, elocution, and governance – an abundance of activities to cultivate awareness beyond the medi- tation cushion. “This legacy can’t just be noted, cataloged, and stored, because that won’t preserve it,” says Joe Litven, a Legacy Project supporter. Like the chanting of the sutras, he adds, “This transmission has to be enacted and preserved by living people and handed down to survive into the future.” Photo:harryhaigE,FroMthEcollEctionoFthEshaMBhalaarchivEs Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche being videotaped during the Sadhana of Mahamudra seminar, taught at Karma Dzong, Boulder, November 1975.
