After years of hearing all the controversy surrounding Chogyam Trungpa I chose to read this anthology to see what I could learn for myself. I was astounded by how much of what Trungpa taught has extended thread-like into teachings extending beyond his own students, into many New Age teachers concepts as well. Regarding controversy, I should admit I have always found it odd that people expect yogis to be other than human; it seems to me that no matter how highly we are developed spiritually, as long as we are in these human bodies, we are subject to the potential for human failings. In truth, I think we need to be able to accept both the light and dark in ourselves, in our teachers and in the world around us. When it comes to Trungpa Rinpoche, he put it all out there with no attempt to hide his humanness. After reading this wonderful anthology of essays it occurs to me that was the point; I believe his whole life was a teaching, a powerful example to the world that (for lack of better expression from this non-Buddhist) we are all both sacred and profane.
