In the last talk from the Meditation: The Path of the Buddha series (Naropa 1974), Chögyam Trungpa gives us a taste of the desolation and power of shunyata or emptiness and how this experience leads to the dawning of buddha nature and the first glimpse of enlightenment.

“…you begin to experience the dawn or glimmer of light, which in Western language is called the Star of Bethlehem. A birth of something is taking place. There’s a star in the deep black midnight sky.” – CTR
