Looking Anew at the Ocean of Dharma

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 Carolyn Gimian, who initiated the Quotes of the Week, selects several quotes each week from the published and unpublished work of the great Buddhist author, Chögyam Trungpa, whose name (Chögyam) means “Ocean of Dharma” in Tibetan.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.

  1. High Pitch

    Awareness limpid clear and bright
    Glowing warm a heart of purest gold
    That high pitch voice, song birds on the wind
    A touch, the breath of space herself

    The sun does a double-take when you feel like shining

    Words ring true and ripple on and on
    Transparency, the teardrops from your eyes
    Please smile again on an average earthly morning
    Your light will carry us until we meet in sleep

    Binding factor,

  2. This quotes speaks to the expenditure of energy. If our use of money unbalanced, Trungpa suggests that our use of energy in our lives is probably also unbalanced. If we are spending too much,, i.e. credit card debt, it’s a good bet we are overextended in many places in our lives. This is an important book.

  3. He spoke to me in the following: We cannot change the way the world is, but by opening ourselves to the world as it is, we may find that gentlemess, decency and bravery are available — to all human beings.
