The CTI Archive and Museum

Currently in the planning stages, the Museum and Archive will house physical documents, visual art, and many other items, both secular and sacred.

Our Goal

Our goal is to provide exhibition, conservation, and storage spaces for archival records, as well as cultural artifacts and personal belongings, of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, including examples of his work as a visual artist.

The Institute has been given one of Chogyam Trungpa’s rare paintings: the Smoke Dragon, which is his largest painting. This painting is a gift of Diana J. Mukpo and the Mukpo family. After reframing, this unusual and evocative work of art will be prominently displayed at Naropa University and will be the first permanent exhibition of the artist’s work at the Institute.

The CT Digital Library

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.

CTR Transcription Project

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.
