In the 1970s, the Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche offered two teachings — one on Feminine Principle, held a short walk from Karmê Chöling, and the other on EVAM, offered in Boulder, Colo.

Jan. 1, 1975, Barnet Town Hall (pictured above).

Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche from his talk on Feminine Principle, delivered Jan. 1, 1975, at Barnet, Vt.’s Town Hall, a short walk from Karmê Chöling.

“There is an unspeakable, unnameable, fundamental pain which produces the reality of a confused realm.

“And because of that, then (Buddha) also realized that there is a realm of non-existence. No ego, no basic being, no substance. But at the same time that experience had to be experienced by some intelligent mind, which is called prajna, so consequently the prajna is referred to as the mother of all the buddhas.

“So from the basic realities concerned, there is nothing but space. Unconditional space. Space that which is not defined or labeled as product or producer.

“And that is the mother of all the buddhas.”
