"Choegyam Trungpa (1940-1987) meditation master, teacher, and artist founded Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, the first Buddhist-inspired university in North America; the Shambhala Training program; and an international association of meditation centers known as Shambhala International. He is the author of numerous books including Shambhala- The Sacred Path of the Warrior, Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism, and The Myth of Freedom."
"Trungpa uses unexpected and surprising imagery which is often visceral and always striking. I found reading these articles induced an experience not unlike that of digging out old rock music and being struck by its fresh energy and imagination."-Wildmind.org
