On occasion there are people we meet in life who have an immediate effect on us. What strikes us is the strength of their un-self-centered presence, their confidence, the wisdom in their eyes or the warmth they radiate. Dzigar Kongtrul defines what it means to be a spiritual person in modern times, whether through his teaching, his passion as an abstract painter, his steadfast loyalty to his lineage, or through his joy in solitude - his fierce independence and unshakable determination to engage his own path throughout it all, Dzigar Kongtrul mixes practice and life. "Isn’t that the goal of the spiritual path?" Rinpoche often asks. Indeed it is--to be flexible, courageous and exploratory in the face of life’s joys and paradoxes, while never parting from a connection to its deepest meaning.
