The Chogyam Trungpa Institute is creating a digital library to make Chogyam Trungpa’s teachings available online. We are completing the digital transcription and captioning of 2,500 lectures.

What Our Donors Say

"Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, my late husband, taught tirelessly during the seventeen years that he was in North America, and there is still a vast amount of material that has not yet been transcribed. These teachings are profound and precious and in the right circumstances will be of enormous benefit to future generations. This project represents both a precious opportunity as well as an enormous responsibility. I wholeheartedly support it."
Diana J. Mukpo
widow of Chogyam Trungpa
"No one has been able to transmit the authentic Buddhist teachings to westerners as effectively and skillfully as Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. It is essential for the future of Buddhism that every word of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s teachings, instructions and advice be properly transcribed and preserved for the sake of this and future generations. I therefore wholeheartedly support this crucial effort. "
Dzongsar Khyentse Rinopche
