Secret Beyond Thought: The Five Chakras and the Four Karmas by Vidyadhara the Venerable Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche


Secret Beyond Thought is an edited transcript of a two-talk public seminar Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche taught in Boston, Massachusetts in February 1971. The first talk is an excellent introduction to the tantric principles of the chakra system. Specifically, the Vidyadhara addresses how it embodies the five awakened aspects of body, speech, mind, quality, and action. The second talk offers a unique teaching on the four karmas—or enlightened activities—and how they can either conquer or be perverted by the four maras, our personal demons and habitual patterns of ego-fixation.

These two teachings, among the earliest the Vidyadhara gave in North America, provide a glimpse into the profound trust Chögyam Trungpa had in the possibility that genuine buddhadharma could be successfully transplanted into Western culture.
