To trust completely and let go ~ Chögyam Trungpa http://justdharma.com/s/cfgs8  One's relationship with the vajra master involves surrendering oneself to the teacher as the final expression of egolessness. This allows the practitioner to develop fully the threefold vajra nature: vajra body, vajra speech, vajra mind. The maturation of devotion into complete surrendering is called 'lote lingkyur' in Tibetan. Lote means 'trust,' ling means 'completely,' and kyur means 'abandoning' or 'letting…

Being present yet not manipulative ~ Chögyam Trungpa http://justdharma.com/s/fea5n  One can define meditation as a process of letting go, of giving up conflict, not in a passive, spineless sense, but in the sense of being present yet not manipulative. So we are faced with the moment-to-moment alternative of either opening to space, of being in harmony with it, or of solidifying and fixating it  – Chögyam Trungpa  from the book "Foundations of Mindfulness" ISBN: 978-0394731797…

Looking at Who We Are ~ Chögyam Trungpa http://justdharma.com/s/gtbhs  People have difficulty beginning a spiritual practice because they put a lot of energy into looking for the best and easiest way to get into it. We might have to change our attitude and give up looking for the best or easiest way. Actually, there is no choice. Whatever approach we take, we will have to deal with what we are already. We have to look at who we are.  – Chögyam Trungpa  from the book "The Heart of the Buddha…

This journey is not particularly pleasant ~ Chögyam Trungpa http://justdharma.com/s/86t9m  The practice of meditation brings all kinds of experiences of uncertainty, discontentment of all kinds. But those experiences seem to be absolutely necessary. In fact, they seem to be the sign that you are on the path at last. So we can't do publicity by having testimonials for meditation practice. If we did, it would be disastrous. This has been pointed out many times in the books and the teachings…

Click into the sense of delight  ~ Chögyam Trungpa http://justdharma.com/s/0bxdb  The phenomenal world is self-existing. You can see it, you can look at it, you can appreciate your survey, and you can present your view to others. It is possible to discover the inherent state of things. It is possible to perceive how the world hangs together. It is possible to communicate your appreciation to others. The possibility of freshness is always there. Your mind is never totally contaminated by your…

Effort ~ Chögyam Trungpa http://justdharma.com/s/75iha  It has been said in the Buddhist teachings that without exertion, you cannot journey on the path at all. When you are taking a holiday or a vacation, you are very inspired to wake up in the morning, because you are expecting to have a tremendous experience. Exertion is like the minute before you wake up on a holiday trip: you trust that you are going to have a good time, but you also have to put your effort into it. So true exertion is…

Gentleness toward ourselves ~ Chögyam Trungpa http://justdharma.com/s/fx6ei  By developing gentleness toward ourselves, the irritation of being with oneself is taken away. When that kind of friendliness to oneself occurs, then one also develops friendliness toward the rest of the world. At that point, sadness, loneliness, and wretchedness begin to dissipate. We develop a sense of humor. We don’t get so pissed off if we have a bad cup of coffee in the morning. Appreciating our human dignity…

Dharma is the truth of the reality ~ Chögyam Trungpa http://justdharma.com/s/9uskq  The dharma is based on honesty, on not having self-deception of any kind. When the dharma says blue, it is blue; when it says red, it is red. Dharma is like saying fire is hot, or the sky is blue: it is speaking the truth. The difference is that dharma is the truth of the reality of the journey toward freedom. Saying that red is red does not particularly liberate you from seeing green or yellow. But when…
