Ocean of Dharma / Shambhala

A Profound Giveaway

The three volumes of The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma present a complete map of the Tibetan Buddhist path from beginning to end, as taught by the Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. It is based on the teachings presented at the annual three-month meditation and study retreats known as the Vajradhatu Seminaries, which he led every summer from 1973 to 1986. This remarkable material—which has never before been published—presents Trungpa Rinpoche’s teaching on the hinayana, mahayana, and vajrayana in a way that joins the traditional concepts with contemplative understanding.

To celebrate the Shambhala New Year, Ocean of Dharma and Shambhala Publications are giving away The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, the full three-volume set with more than 1,800 pages of Chögyam Trungpa’s heart teachings. These beautiful volumes are indeed a treasure.

To be entered into the drawing, please leave a comment below telling us what you find genuinely profound in life. Please leave your comment only once–we approve all comments before they appear below. The winner will be randomly selected at noon EST on Shambhala Day, the Tibetan New Year, which falls this year on February 11. Congratulations to Becky! Thank you all for your thoughtful comments and your readership. Please come back soon for more giveaways.

  1. I find hand washing dishes to be a genuinely profound part of life. Chores like this use to be a distraction from real life, a drag. Now I use this daily activity as a quiet time to consciously remind myself to return to awareness. Amid the soap bubbles I can always reclaim my genuine essence and feel connected to the vast systems of life surrounding and supporting my journey.

  2. In life, I find all there is to learn from the ways of nature to be genuinely profound. The relationship between a squirrel and owl, the steadiness of the rocky mountains, the flow of the mighty river, wax and wane of the moon, rise of the sun, or the incredible power of a forest fire. There is something to learn always.

  3. That there is life…and there is love, humor, sarcasm, gratitude, awe, embarrassment, reverence… that we experience and generate these things. Especially love.
