Reviews

"Carolyn Gimian has accomplished a formidable task, boiling down the reflections on 'karma' of the ever wise and irascible Ch gyam Trungpa. The Future Is Open, as in the title itself, sketches a path forward even as it candidly details our karmic dilemma. As always, Trungpa Rinpoche poses us a riddle, this one about the stuff of our lives--and, just perhaps, dangles a solution."--Daniel Goleman, author Emotional Intelligence and Force for Good: The Dalai Lama's Vision for Our World

"Our deep urge to understand the ultimate truth often implicitly assumes we understand the relative truth. But beyond the failures of philosophers, at the most basic level we sentient beings constantly fail in our own pursuit of happiness. So it is of utmost importance to understand the relative truth, of which karma is the epitome. And who can explain that truth better than Ch gyam Trungpa Rinpoche--a master who was not only extraordinarily knowledgeable but was spiritually accomplished and understood the modern world like no one else. If you're curious how karma works, read this book!"--Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse, author of What Makes You Not a Buddhist
