  • Hi There! A fun read - thanks! So, what he is calling "nothingness" is actually an experience he had and can describe. The Nothing that is everything is already always the case.

  • When asked by one of his Western student puzzling over Buddhist teachings of egolessness, ‘Well, then, if there is no self, what is it that reincarnates?’ the Tibetan lama Chogyam Trungpa laughed and answered without hesitation. ‘Neurosis,’ he replied. ---In meditationsocietyofamerica@^$1, wrote : I think Buddhism is a big tent.
