Chogyam Trungpa. New Videos: on Enlightened Society, 1982.

New York City, 1982.

Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche—widely credited with pioneering the transmission of Buddhism in terms immediate and accessible to the modern West—teaches on “building enlightened society.”

Finally, a few more videos of this great teacher are available on Youtube.

For many more videos, go to Shambhala.org.

“In an open forum, The Venerable Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, (1939-1987) discusses a society guided by the principles of wisdom and compassion. He was a pioneer in bringing the Tibetan Buddhist teachings to North America, Europe and in 1976 introduced Shambhala.”

A truly generous person! The task of distributing his teachings is ongoing. Many hours of recorded material remain archived , yet to be transcribed to book or video formats. http://www.shambhala.org is a good place to begin, or we can chat if you like. Good Luck!! 😉
