Vajradhara is a teenager, empty, luminous, and capable of anything

Our pride and joy, our worst nightmare, this is how Trungpa spoke of Vajradhara, as being a primordial disruption, which is why we visualize him as a teenage boy very much a creature of the appearances, not unlike any other teenager ever.

I submit this for your consideration that we have forgotten this as Karma Kagyu, what Vajradhara is, and are the worse for having done since the 16th Karmapa passed into Parinirvana here 35 years ago.
