“Enlightenment is ego's ultimate disappointment.”
Chögyam Trungpa

“We do not have to be ashamed of what we are. As sentient beings we have wonderful backgrounds. These backgrounds may not be particularly enlightened or peaceful or intelligent. Nevertheless, we have soil good enough to cultivate; we can plant anything in it.”
Chögyam Trungpa, Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism

“The essence of warriorship, or the essence of human bravery, is refusing to give up on anyone or anything.”
Chogyam Trungpa, Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior
