10-24-12 - MK noticed in the Trungpa Rinpoche lecture on Zen linked to on October 2nd that Trungpa said Zen was like a Heath Robinson Pancake Machine. Here's a Heath Robinson page with the pancake machine being three down and 4th down the OK Go video for "This too shall pass." - thanks Michael Katz

CTR = Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
Sam Bercholz is the founder of Shambhala Publications (publisher of two of my books). I remember buying books from him in the sixties at his little hole-in-the-wall store on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley. Sam and I were talking about mysterious events surrounding the death of Alan Watts and he told me that Trungpa was with Alan earlier that evening. He said that Trungpa loved Alan Watts' books and thought he must be enlightened - until he met him - though that didn't diminish Trungpa's respect for Watts and his work. Sam said he went to Sokoji and heard Shunryu Suzuki speak, liked Suzuki but was turned off by some people or maybe some person and didn't go back. He went on to become a close disciple of Chogyam Trungpa. - dc
