There’s nothing “safe” about our relationship with the Karma Kagyu lineage

Kalu Rinpoche, Rangjung Rikpe Dorje, and Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

Dear readers,

Salut mes amis !

So much for China’s “safe” wisdom.

“I went to Sikkim, just sightseeing, and wound up in Rumtek Monastery. I met the Karmapa and saw the Black Hat ceremony, which came to mean a great deal to me much later on. We also visited the Lamas’ Home School at Dalhousie, where my later teacher, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, was the director. Although I didn’t have much conversation with him, Gary Snyder took a picture showing Peter Orlovsky leaning over, me looking on, and Trungpa Rinpoche showing us a text that was on the altar.”

Allen Ginsberg

Voilà

And its “safe” Karmapa, if need be.

Même pas peur !
