Chögyam Trungpa: Shambhala – the sacred path of the warrior

shambhalaJust finished this breath-taking book which is as popular today as it was when it was first published in 1984.

There is a basic human wisdom that can help solve the world`s problems. It doesn`t belong to any one culture or region or religious tradition – though it can be found in many of them throughout history. It`s what the author called the sacred path of the warrior. The sacred warrior conquers the world not through violence or aggression, but through gentleness, courage, and self-knowledge.

Chögyam Trungpa (1939-1987) was a Tibetan Buddhist meditation master, teacher, and artist.

« Trungpa’s warrior is a most appealing figure, embodying qualities that every spiritual tradition would hold dear. The principal discipline recommended here—being genuine moment after moment—allows one to discover the magic inherent in phenomena, where the synchronization of body and mind becomes an attunement to the natural order. »—Yoga Journal

« Trungpa’s clear-headed vision shows us that celebrating life is based on appreciating ourselves. This book is a masterpiece of clarity and insight. »—East West Journal
