Orderly Chaos - The Mandala Principle by Chogyam Trungpa
Orderly Chaos | The Mandala Principle | Chogyam Trungpa

According to the mandala principle, a prominent feature of tantric Buddhism, all phenomena are part of one reality. Whether good or bad, happy or sad, clear or obscure, everything is interrelated and reflects a single totality. As Chogyam Trungpa explains in this book, from the perspective of the mandala principle, existence is orderly chaos. There is chaos and confusion because everything happens by itself, without any external ordering principle. At the same time, whatever happens expresses order and intelligence, wakeful energy and precision. Through meditative practices associated with the mandala principle, the opposites of experience -- confusion and enlightenment, chaos and order, pain and pleasure -- are revealed as inseparable parts of a total vision of reality.

Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche (1939-1987)--meditation master, scholar, and artist--was well-known throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe as a Buddhist teacher as well as founder and president of Vajradhatu, Naropa University, and Shambhala Training.
