Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche died of a cardiac arrest (b. 1939). He had established the Gampo Abbey monastery in Cape Breton in 1983, and his headquarters in Halifax in 1986. He was a supreme abbot of the Surmang monasteries, a scholar, teacher, poet, artist and originator of a radical representation of the Shambhala vision. On the Shambhala tradition, he wrote, “With the great problems facing human society, it seems increasingly important to find simple and non-sectarian ways to work with ourselves and to share our understanding with others. The Shambhala teachings or ‘Shambhala vision’ as this approach is more broadly called, is one such attempt to encourage a wholesome existence for ourselves and others.”
