Ocean of Dharma Quotes of the Week is an e-mail feature that brings you the teachings of dharma master Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. An e-mail is sent out several times each week containing a timely or timeless quote from Chögyam Trungpa’s extensive teachings. Quotations of material may be from unpublished material, forthcoming publications, or previously published sources. Sources are provided so that readers can look further into the material if they wish. Occasionally, a story rather than a quotation is provided.

In addition to quotations and stories, from time to time, the Ocean of Dharma Quotes of the Week includes information on the publication of books and articles by Chögyam Trungpa. Quotes are sometimes offered in translation, as well as in the English original. Translations into French, Spanish, German, Dutch, Italian, and Polish have been included so far.

Ocean of Dharma Quotes of the Week are selected by Carolyn Rose Gimian, the editor of The Collected Works of Chögyam Trungpa. She is the moderator for the list and is happy to answer questions and receive comments on the list at carolyn@shambhala.com.

“As a loving and grateful student of Chögyam Trungpa, the Dorje Dradül of Mukpo, I am delighted that these teachings—which have so profoundly influenced and shaped my life—are now available to benefit others.”
