A mass market edition of the classic guide to enlightened living that first presented the Buddhist path of the warrior to Western readers.
Chogyam Trungpa (1940-1987) - meditation master, teacher and artist - was founder of the Naropa Institute and Shambhala training, and is the author of several books, including Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism and Meditation in Action
"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 "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
