If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

This is an interesting thread. What follows are teachers with whom I have directly studied or whose works and teachings were a direct influence on me, and to whom I owe much and for whom I feel a great gratitude. No particular order.

Trungpa Rinpoche was a formative influence on me too Tilt , as was Khantipalo, and Chime Rinpoche still is.
