Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this book a renowned meditation master teaches that meditation is not a retreat from the world. Rather, it extends beyond the practice of sitting meditation and builds the foundation for compassion, awareness, and creativity in all aspects of life. Chögyam Trungpa, one of the foremost contemporary teachers of Buddhism, founded the Naropa Institute and Shambhala Training.

Synopsis:

We learn that meditation is based on trying to see what is, rather than trying to achieve a higher state. It's not a retreat from the world but builds a foundation for compassion, awareness, and creativity in all aspects of a person's mind and behavior.
