Chogyam Trungpa & The Kagyu Mahasiddhas: Immanence & History
Chogyam Trungpa was a 20th century Tibetan Buddhist lama, who was part of a lineage called the Kagyu, which extends back to 10th century India. The central idea of the Kagyu lineage is known as Mahāmudrā – which is simultaneously a philosophy of co-emergence between mind and phenomenal reality, a yogic technique designed to produce this experience, and the experience itself. My relationship with this idea, technique and lineage is deep and intimate – but also cautious and at times critical. Despite such resistance, it is probably true to say that I am at heart more Kagyu than anything else, and this continually ripens in a curious unfolding of immanence and history.
