What particular tradition is the line of the Trungpas associated with? To begin with, Buddhism, of course, and then the Buddhist tradition in Tibet. What kind of Buddhist discipline is associated with the Trungpa lineage? And what particular locality of Tibet is the lineage connected to? We are forced to consider the background story, which is connected with what is known as the teachings of the Practicing Lineage. All of you who are reading this quote and studying these teachings are also part of that lineage. At this point, a lot of you have inherited it, a lot of you are just about to inherit it, and a lot of you are just beginning to dip into this particular tradition. That tradition, again, is called the Practicing Lineage.
