Synopses & Reviews
One of Tibet's highest and most respected lamas elucidates for us the principles of Shambhala, or the path to happiness, set down by his legendary father, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.
The Shambhala tradition emphasizes confidence in the enlightened nature of all beings and teaches courageous rulership based on wisdom and compassion. In a book that combines philosophy and practicality, Sakyong Mipham, the leader of a global community of meditation centers rooted in these principles, explains in simple language the goodness of humanity and illuminates how we can rediscover the peace that exists within each of us. The key is the right form of meditation, one that can be used to cultivate goodness and intelligence, and, in turn, transform our minds, bodies, and souls.
