Praise

“This elucidating compilation is a unique milestone in the annals of philosophical and phenomenological thinking, as well as Buddhist practice. Scholarly and poetic, The Teacup and the Skullcup takes on the provocative nuances of Zen and tantra as ‘consociational’ allies in a new Western matrix. The compilation of discourse shows the inimitable brilliance of one of the twentieth century’s greatest meditation teachers whose ‘Socratic rap’ and generosity to students is unsurpassed. East also meets East here, one could say, with wit, aesthetic grace, profound and subtle insight. I am so grateful.”—Anne Waldman

“For years Chögyam Trungpa dazzled us with his diamond wisdom at various venues from coast to coast. We delighted in his insights into the arts of Zen and its relationship to the tantric teachings. A whole generation of Buddhist was thus nourished. Now, The Teacup and the Skullcup skillfully makes available the heart of this extraordinary master to a new generation of practitioners. It should be on the bookshelf of every serious student of Buddhism.”—John Daido Loori

“Trungpa Rinpoche’s astonishing take on Zen and tantra reads like a speech delivered from another planet. What we have in The Teacup and the Skullcup is less a work of explanation and exposition than a bravura performance—a wild, weird demonstration of intellectual daring and outrageously dead-on spiritual vision.”—Norman Fischer

The Teacup and the Skullcup is a jewel box of illumined insights, alert humor, and serious genius. Every creative artist and creative meditator should have these pages to go through.”—Michael McClure
