Buddhadharma : Spri 2013
SPRING 2 0 1 3 BUDDHADHARMA: THE PRACTITIONER’S QUARTERLY 41 From 1973 to 1986, the late Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche led an annual series of programs called Vajradhatu Seminaries for his most committed students. Over the course of thirteen intensive three-month programs, he created a comprehen- sive presentation of the three-yana journey that is now being made public for the first time with the publication of The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma. DZOGCHEN PONLOP RINPOCHE, himself a lineage holder in this tradition, takes us through this unique body of teachings. PHOTOCOURTESYOFNAROPAUNIVERSITY In the summer of 1980, the Vidya dhara, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, invited my father and me for dinner at the Kalapa Court in Boulder, Col orado. That evening, Rinpoche sur prised me with an extraordinary gift: a collection of his seminary transcripts along with a roll of Japanese brocade personally designed by him, on a tray. The Vidyadhara looked at me over the rim of his glasses and asked, “Can you read in English?” “Not very well,” I replied. “Perhaps someday you can enjoy these,” he said, motioning to the stack of transcripts. While I was attending monastic college, I kept Rinpoche’s transcripts with me and never forgot his words. After attending Columbia University, I began to read them more closely. Rinpoche’s fresh and experiential interpretations of the orig inal Buddhist concepts that I’d studied my whole life couldn’t help but give me a new perspective. Three decades after receiving the transcripts, I appreciate the opportunity to revisit these his toric and innovative teachings. Once again, I’m struck by the remarkable achievement of the Vidyadhara and his brilliant and masterful pre sentation of buddhadharma to the West. At the same time, it’s a challenge to convey their special qualities and what they’ve meant and continue to mean to those seeking a genuine experience of waking up. As a member of the last generation of Tibetan masters trained in Tibet, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche received a rigorous, and I daresay excruciatingly thorough, training in the Vajrayana Naropa Institute, Boulder, Colorado, ca 1976
