Trungpa, however, remained the sole Director of the First Class on the legally filed documents of incorporation until 2000, thirteen years after his 1987 death.

 Allen Ginsberg 1976 New Age Interview by Peter Barry Chowka: I of II   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
I seem to be able to relate to Trungpa best, although I must say that it may be that the looseness and heartiness and charm of his approach is not necessarily the deepest for my case.

It was not the first time that such an experience had presented itself to the monk, and he was unalarmed by the fact that he could understand perfectly the languages, and knew the names of the speakers, and that the interlocutors could also understand one another.
The pleasant thing about such conversations, thought Chogyam Trungpa, was that the dead could speak with the living, although those still living on the mundane material plane would usually only become aware of the content of the conversation in dreams.
Chogyam Trungpa thought of the first lesson of his first teacher, who had taught him that dreams, and the messages received in meditation, contained 'Big Truths' which were lost to most people in the sensory delusion of mundane life.
