"By being back to square one constantly, we find lightheartedness in the ultimate sense."Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
Glimpses of Realization
is based on "The Three Bodies of Enlightenment," a seminar taught by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche in Boulder, Colorado, 1975. It is an in-depth practitioner's guide to the trikaya: the dharmakaya ("The question of dharmakaya's existence is that it need not exist at all at the beginning"
), sambhogakaya ("From that, a lot of luminosity or light can shine through"
), and nirmanakaya ("That familiar nirmanakaya awake quality is everywhere, all the time"
). Chapter titles include
- Why We Are Here At All
- Cosmic Disaster
- Self-Existing Grin
- Loose & Awake
- Buddha is Everywhere
Each chapter is followed by a session of questions and answers in which Trungpa Rinpoche further teaches how to be loose and awake in the unfathomable space of big mind.
