In three newly released seminars, Chogyam Trungpa presents the path for transforming confusion into enlightened wisdom. He describes this bewilderment as not simply a personal flaw, but in fact a key to spiritual realization.
Each of the three provides a different perspective of this confusion-to-wisdom metamorphosis. Given in Montreal in 1971 during one of Trungpa Rinpoche’s most prolific teaching tours, the first seminar “Passion and Aggression” examines the nature of these two “poisons”, which are viewed as “manure of experience” — fertile ground to work with on the Buddhist path. The second and third series took place a few years later in 1978, “Transforming Confusion into Wisdom” I and II in Boston and LA. These seminars include pith instructions on transforming confusion, and go on to explore vajrayana concepts including the role of the guru in this transformational process and recognizing vajra nature in oneself and the world.
