These eighteen provocative and powerful dharma discourses were given in Berkeley and Santa Cruz, California in 1976.

Here, meditation master Chogyam Trungpa offers advice on how to transform our lives with skillful means and wisdom as we journey on the three yanas of the Buddhist path. The videos include:

  • Five talks on the hinayana, stressing the importance of meditation practice
  • Seven talks on the mahayana, highlighting the six enlightened actions
  • Six talks on the vajrayana, focussing on the deep commitment to a vajra master required at this stage of practice

Colourful and full of humour, Trungpa Rinpoche also points out the many traps of spiritual materialism and self-deception that may be fatal sidetracks along the way. His relationship with the audience is sometimes magnetizing, sometimes almost shocking or insulting--but always with the goal of introducing people to the compassion and sanity they inherently possess. Let Chogyam Trungpa wake you up with this fresh and profound view of skillful means and wisdom.
