Picture of Chogyam Trungpa at Tail of the Tiger in 1970 the old man instagramed to illustrate this episode of Pulp Buddhism in which the Naropa Prairie Dog Players do a dramatic reading from volume five of Rinpoche’s collected works, in his own words…
“How does discipline relate to being what you really are?”
“I thought discipline meant imposing something on yourself.”
“The most difficult discipline is to be what you are.”
“Constantly trying to be what you are not is much easier, because we are trained to con either ourselves or others, to fit things into appropriate categories.”
“Whereas if you take all of that away, the whole thing becomes too irritating, too boring.”
“There’s no room for talking yourself into anything.
“Everything is quite simple.”
End scene. Fini.
