Description
"The Collected Works of ChOgyam Trungpa " brings together in eight volumes the writings of one of the first and most influential and inspirational Tibetan teachers to present Buddhism in the West. Organized by theme, the collection includes full-length books as well as articles, seminar transcripts, poems, plays, and interviews, many of which have never before been available in book form. From memoirs of his escape from Chinese-occupied Tibet to insightful discussions of psychology, mind, and meditation; from original verse and calligraphy to the esoteric lore of tantric Buddhism--the impressive range of Trungpa's vision, talents, and teachings is showcased in this landmark series.


Volume Six contains advanced teachings on the nature of mind and tantric experiences. ChOgyam Trungpa's commentary on the "Tibetan Book of the Dead " explains what this classic text teaches about human psychology. "Transcending Madness " presents a unique view of the Tibetan concept of bardo. "Orderly Chaos " explains the inner meaning of the mandala. "Secret Beyond Thought " presents teachings on the five chakras and the four karmas. "Glimpses of Space " consists of two seminars: "The Feminine Principle" and "Evam." In the article "Femininity," the author presents a playful look at the role of feminine energy in Buddhist teachings. "The Bardo," based on teachings given in England in the 1960s, has not been available in published form for many years.
