Ocean of Dharma Quotes of the Week was launched on April 9, 2003. Carolyn Gimian, who initiated the Quotes of the Week, selects several quotes each week from the published and unpublished work of the great Buddhist author, Chögyam Trungpa, whose name (Chögyam) means "Ocean of Dharma" in Tibetan.
One hundred and eight subscribers signed up for the e-mail list on the first day. Now there are close to 10,000 readers subscribed. With today's quote, we launch a new look for the Ocean of Dharma e-mail, with a number of new features. The design is similar to the cover design of the book Ocean of Dharma: The Everyday Wisdom of Chögyam Trungpa, which presents 365 short quotes.
We'd love to hear your comments about the new look, so we’re giving away five copies of the Ocean of Dharma book! Leave a comment below, and you'll be entered in a contest to win a copy. Congrats to our winners: Germaine, Edmund, Leslie, Christine, and Katharine! Thank you for your comments. Stay tuned for more giveaways from Shambhala Publications.
