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.”

Hello, I found you through a twitter follow.. I had no idea there were any videos available of him, this is wonderful I live in Scotland and am very close friends with a woman who knew him well back in his Samye Ling days, she is my Reiki master/teacher and close friend. I believe he is supposed to have re-incarnated in America? I am not a Buddhist,
but I love the teachings as a great well and source of wisdom. Thank you for this. I am following you as FreyaFey.
