Description


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 Chogyam Trungpa 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. The warrior discovers the basic goodness of human life and radiates that goodness out into the world for the peace and sanity of others. That's what the Shambhala teachings are all about, and this is the book that has been presenting them to a wide and appreciative audience for more than twenty years.

About the Author


Chogyam Trungpa (1940 1987) meditation master, scholar, and artist was founder and president of Vajradhatu, Naropa University, and Shambhala Training. His other books include Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior, and Great Eastern Sun: The Wisdom of Shambhala.

The compiler and editor of "The Collected Works of Chogyam Trungpa," Carolyn Rose Gimian, has been editing the works of Chogyam Trungpa for more than twenty-five years. Following his death, she became the founding director of the Shambhala Archives, the archival repository for Chogyam Trungpa's work in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Diana J. Mukpo was born in England in 1953. She attended the prestigious Benenden School until she left at the age of sixteen to marry the Tibetan Buddhist teacher Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Mrs. Mukpo moved to the United States in 1970, where she remained with Trungpa Rinpoche until his death in 1987. During their marriage, she pursued intensive study of dressage. She is now the owner and director of Windhorse Dressage, and she travels and teaches dressage clinics throughout the United States and Canada.

Praise For…


“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

“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

Shambhala provides a clear depiction of the results and, thus, the reasons for meditation practice as a source of strength for daily living and spiritual growth.”—Body, Mind & Spirit
