One of the innovations that Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche was most proud of in transplanting Buddhism to the West was the Vajradhatu Seminary, a three-month teaching and training program for several hundred students. It was a time he spent working very closely with his students, and his love for them was in great evidence. This calligraphy was executed at the 1978 Vajradhatu Seminary in Dixville Notch, New Hampshire, an event that was marked by his proclamation of the Great Eastern Sun-the sun of enlightened mind that awakens in each moment. It was unusual for him to do a calligraphy of an English word. It came in very handy to illustrate an article on, what else, love. -Liza Matthews
Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche was one of the leading Buddhist teachers of the 20th century and a pioneer in bringing Buddhism to the West. He was a poet, painter, and calligrapher whose teachings on dharma art described a profound connection between meditative mind and the creative process.
