Chogyam Trungpa, on “leaders of Humanity.”

Over the centuries, there have been many who have sought the ultimate
good and have tried to share it with their fellow human beings. To
realize it requires immaculate discipline and unflinching conviction.
Those who have been fearless in their search and fearless in their
proclamation belong to the lineage of master warriors, whatever their
religion, philosophy, or creed. What distinguishes such leaders of
humanity and guardians of human wisdom is their fearless expression
of gentleness and genuineness — on behalf of all sentient beings. We
should venerate their example and acknowledge the path that they have
laid for us. They are the fathers and mothers of Shambhala, who make
it possible, in the midst of this degraded age, to contemplate
enlightened society.
