A collection of Chögyam Trungpa’s early teachings in North America–on buddha nature, emptiness, the feminine principle, and the three bodies of enlightenment. At the beginning of a North American teaching career that would span seventeen years, the meditation master Chögyam Trungpa conducted five pivotal seminars covering various dharmic topics. The transcripts from these seminars are collected here so that readers can experience them right at home. Comprising twenty-six talks in total, each one followed by a Q&A, Glimpses of the Profound is sure to provoke glimpses of all kinds: glimpses that inspire you to look further, glimpses that give you confidence, glimpses that upset the apple cart, glimpses that open your heart, glimpses that undermine falsity, glimpses that awaken you to your boundless potential.This book was originally published as four separate volumes by Vajradhatu Publications. Judith L. Lief has written a new introduction.
At the beginning of his North American teaching career, Chögyam Trungpa conducted five pivotal seminars on various dharmic topics. The teachings from these seminars—originally published as four separate volumes and including Q&A—are now available in this single volume: • ”Glimpses of Mahayana,” on the discovery and characteristics of buddha nature • ”Glimpses of Shunyata,” on the central mahayana teaching of emptiness • ”Glimpses of Space,” on the inseparability of the vastness of the feminine principle and the dynamism of the masculine principle • ”Glimpses of Realization,” on the three bodies of enlightenment (dharmakaya, sambhogakaya, nirmanakaya)In these short, penetrating talks and lively exchanges with his early Western students, the Venerable Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche presents the essential teachings of Tibetan Buddhism in a direct and experiential way. The talks resonated intensely with his audiences when they were given, and they continue to inspire those who wish to look further into the profundity of human experience. This collection provides direct glimpses of the possibility of liberation, the opening of the human heart, and the awakening of one’s true potential.
