Neurotic Aspects of Mind
(New York City, 1971), captures well the fresh, wide-ranging, unscripted nature of Trungpa Rinpoche's early talks and his interaction with students. The students' questions come from every reference point, including the difference between religion, which looks for beauty, and Buddhism, which regards spirituality as raw, rugged, and not connected with "singing angels."
In this digitally remastered audio, Rinpoche discusses the original act of freezing space and how it leads to our "neurotic" relationship with the world. He presents meditation as the way to open an aperture in that confusion, allowing us to connect with basic space. And, in his mischievous and inimitable style, he responds to the question of whether the creation of ego is spontaneous or deliberate with, "Spontaneously deliberate."
