I don't know what to think about this.
I started reading a book the other day called Training The Mind And Cultivating Loving-Kindness by Chogyam Trungpa.
I Googled him and saw that his life was relatively short. He died in his 40s. So I wondered why and it turned out he died of alcoholism.
He also did cocaine.
Yet, they say, he died in a state of samadhi and his body didn't start decaying for five days.
How does that work?
No disrespect intended. I'm just wondering, literally, how someone can be intoxicated most of the time and still pull off that feat of samadhi. Maybe he had concentration abilities he had developed in a prior life?
