My first Guru was a drunk. And a womaniser. And supremely Awake.
" Don't do what I do " he said. So he was a hypocrite too.
How to resolve this...?
I can't. None of us former students can. Over on Dharma Wheel there is the latest of many many threads attempting to resolve the unresolvable..square the circle..It won't.
He was a drunk, and fearlessly, blazingly Awake.
There are a couple of tempting solutions...One being ' he was a drunk so he couldn't have been Awake ' But my heart knows that to be a lie.
Another temptation is to say ' he was Awake so could do no wrong...' but my heart won't buy that either.
"Tiger-like Chogyam roaming in foreign jungles " he said of himself.
" He caused more trouble and did more good than anyone I have ever known ".
Said Rick one of his students at his funeral.
I miss him. And yet I don't.
