A team of trained transcribers is completing the transcription of close to 1,000 talks never transcribed before. The team is also reviewing, digitizing and correcting older transcripts, and team members also contribute to talk and seminar descriptions for the CTR Digital Library.
The ODT began with a series of yearly workshops at Naropa to train transcribers and editors. The ODT Editors’ Group completed their first book, Cynicism and Magic: Intelligence and Intuition on the Buddhist Path, which was published in 2021.
The Digital Library makes audio and video recordings of Chogyam Trungpa’s teachings available for all to hear and watch. Transcripts and captioning aligned with the recordings are also provided. You can browse, search, and access material in many ways. The Library is still in development.
Based on a series of talks given by Chögyam Trungpa during the first session of what was to become Naropa University, Cynicism and Magic introduces key Tibetan Buddhist concepts, including karma, the structure of ego, the paramitas, and the bodhisattva.
