"There are three principles of shunyata: emptiness as ground, emptiness as path, emptiness as fruition."— Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche

Glimpses of Shunyata is an edited transcript of the seminar "Shunyata," offered by Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche at Karme Chöling, Barnet, Vermont, in April 1972. In these four talks Rinpoche offers a very earthy description of the ground, path, and fruition of shunyata—or emptiness—from a practitioner's point of view. He presents the ground of shunyata as "being by not being," a process in which we could accommodate everything that goes on "without making a big deal of it." The path of shunyata he describes as wisdom and compassion: being open, seeing a situation directly, and relating with what is happening. The fruition, he says, is ultimate non-ego, "basic existence in which there is no distortion of any kind whatsoever." Each talk is followed by a lively discussion period that evokes on-the-spot the experience being described.
