    Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche once described disappointment as “the chariot to enlightenment” – high praise for a generally unwanted, frequently avoided feeling!  Let’s examine this provocative statement through the lens of core Buddhist teachings and explore how life’s letdowns can fuel our confidence in what the Buddha taught.
