What would you say are the 3 most important works written by Trungpa Rinpoche?

1.) Training the Mind and Culting Lovingkindness
2.) Cutting through Spiritual Materialism
3.) Crazy Wisdom

Does anyone here own the Collected Works? I find myself drooling over the thought.

That is cheating, friend. ;)

However, it's an extremely important book. It embraces the no-nonsense style that, I think, characterizes most of CTR's teachings. I think any person of any creed or non-creed, any person trying to embark on a spiritual path, should read this book because you will have moments like me where you say to yourself, "Oh gee, that sounds just like me, and that isn't good!"

These three, though in the reverse order.

His collected works are good but if you are going to fork over the cash for a collection like that I would get Dilgo Khyentse's collected works.

Cool. When you can you should get the Dilgo Khyentse collection as well. Its more traditional and has some indispensable commentaries.

2. Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism
3. The Myth of Freedom

Next year they're going to put out a three volume set of his seminary transcripts which will be epic.

I'm really enjoying "Work, Sex, Money".
Feels like Spiritual Materialism laid down the gauntlet and now WSM uncovers all the weeds.
