Chogyam Trungpa on “enjoying the chaos”

“Working with conflict is precisely the idea of walking on the spiritual path. The path is a wild, winding mountain road with all kinds of curves; there are wild animals, attacks by bandits, all kinds of situations cropping up. As far as the occupation of our mind is concerned, the chaos of the path is the fun.”

–Chogyam Trungpa, from The Dawn of Tantra (with Herbert V. Guenther) via Ocean of Dharma and The Wheel. …To read Trungpa Rinpoche’s best teachings from the Shambhala Sun, visit our Chogyam Trungpa Spotlight page.
