Ocean of Dharma Quotes of the Week

INSPIRING AMERICAN BUDDHISTS
Student: Do you think a new kind of tantric [artistic] tradition might
develop here in the West, if art is being done by Buddhist meditator artists?
Chogyam Trungpa: I very much hope so....It has to be American Buddhists who
become inspired. It is only they who have the understanding to work with
the Western world. It is necessary to have that situation. We reach a
point, a limit to how far we can live on imports. There's some point where
we better manufacture things for ourselves rather than borrowing from
somebody else. Otherwise, we will be enormously in debt.
From "The Doha Tradition," Talk Twelve of Fourteen, from THE TIBETAN
BUDDHIST PATH, Summer, 1974, Naropa University. Forthcoming as a DVD series
