Selected Devotional Poems of Chögyam Trungpa





The third Karmapa, Rangjung Dorje (1284-1339)
This thangka belonged to Trungpa Rinpoche and is currently displayed at the Shambhala Centre in Halifax, Nova Scoita. Used here by permission of Lady Diana Mukpo, the thangka was photographed by Marvin Moore.

David Rome served for many years as Trungpa Rinpoche’s personal secretary, and as one of his first English language editors. When Rinpoche’s poetry was read aloud in public venues or small gatherings, it was more often than not, David who was called upon to read. For the hundreds of students who heard these readings, David Rome is the voice of Trungpa Rinpoche’s poetry.
