Description About the author
 
The Teacup and the Skullcup contains Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche's important teachings on Zen. The heart of the book is a series of seven talks given to students and the public in 1974, under the title "Zen and Tantra." The talks provide a warmly appreciative survey of the roots, meditation, training techniques, results, and the historical places of Zen and tantraparticularly the "crazy wisdom traditionin the development of Buddhism. Trungpa Rinpoche delineates the underlying philosophies and aesthetic expression of the two traditions through vivid example, personal experience, and especially through a lively give and take with the audience. At times enigmatic, often humorous, and always challenging conventional ideas, Trungpa Rinpoche sheds a unique light on practice and the path.

The Teacup and the Skullcup also includes his tantric commentary on one of Zen's most famous teaching devicesthe ten Oxherding Picturesas well as his eulogy for friend and mentor, Zen master Shunryu Suzuki Roshi.

The Vidyadhara Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche is known as one of the most important meditation teachers of Buddhism of the 20th century. Scholar, author, artist, educator, and founder of Naropa University and Shambhala Training, Trungpa Rinpoche's presentation remains unique.
Although himself a master of the "crazy-wisdom" tradition of Tibetan vajrayana Buddhism, he continually explored and incorporated other useful forms for students in the west. In particular, he forged productive spiritual friendships with Zen masters Shunryu Suzuki, Kobun Chino, Eido Shimano, Taizan Maezumi, and Jakusho Kwong.
