    1. Vidyadhara Ch gyam Trungpa Rinpoche Tibetan Wylie Chos rgyam Drung pa also known as Dorje Dradul of Mukpo, Surmang Trungpa, after his monastery, or Ch kyi Gyatso, of which Ch gyam is an abbreviation was a Buddhist meditation master, scholar, teacher, poet, and artist He was the 11th descendent in the line of Trungpa tulkus of the Kagy school of Tibetan Buddhism He was also trained in the Nyingma tradition, the oldest of the four schools, and was an adherent of the rimay or non sectarian movement within Tibetan Buddhism, which aspired to bring together and make available all the valuable teachings of the different schools, free of sectarian rivalry.Trungpa was a significant figure in the dissemination of Tibetan Buddhism to the West, founding Naropa University and establishing the Shambhala Training method, a presentation of the Buddhadharma largely devoid of ethnic trappings In 1963, he moved to England to study comparative religion, philosophy, and fine arts at Oxford University During this time, he also studied Japanese flower arranging and received an instructors degree from the Sogetsu school of ikebana In 1967, he moved to Scotland, where he founded the Samye Ling meditation centre.Shortly thereafter, a variety of experiences including a car accident that left him partially paralyzed on the left side of his body led him to give up his monastic vows and work as a lay teacher In 1969, he published Meditation in Action, the first of fourteen books on the spiritual path published during his lifetime The following year he married Diana Pybus and moved to the United States, where he established his first North American meditation centre, Tail of the Tiger now known as Karm Ch ling in Barnet, Vermont.In 1986, he moved to Nova Scotia, Canada, where hundreds of his students had settled That Autumn, after years of heavy alcohol use, he had a cardiac arrest, and he died of heart failure the following Spring His legacy is carried on by his son, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, under the banner of Shambhala International and the Nalanda Translation Committee.

    2. The purpose of Shambhala is about to help other s to save others to cure others pain, in your daily life by raising your consciousness and being a warrior, fearless and brave, about how to become a real person and how to have a real enlighted society Ch gyam Trungpa was one of the best known Tibetan Buddhist teachers in the west The source is this book are public talks and weekend seminars in the level five of Shambhala training program during the 70 s and 80 s I started reading the book with a [...]

    3. I have been going through a difficult time right now so I started reading books by this author I started with Shambhala, The Sacred Path of the Warrior and continued on with this book which is supposed to be a continuation of the same themes These books are on a topic I can get behind which is creating an enlighten society Seeing how we are about to globally warm ourselves into extinction I think its message is needed than ever Since I never watch TV I had to laugh when I read this Lately we ha [...]

    4. Chogyam Trungpa is always worth reading and Shambhala the book to which this is a follow up is excellent, but this volume which is a collection of speeches given at the conclusion of his curriculum based on the aforementioned book is disjointed, rambling and a bit repetitive Still a lot of wisdom here, but I wouldn t recommend it unless you really liked the previous volume as I did.

    5. While I always find insightful things to ponder in Trungpa s writing no matter what, the redundancy of these talks made it hard to tell one apart from the other I also found myself puzzling over the irony of his BIG NO talk, which seemed hypocritical in light of his alcohol abuse though I agree with the talk s message.

    6. Clear, gentle, and humorous, Trungpa paints a picture of human possibility like no other, and offers a lyrical, intuitive path to realizing it.

    7. Nice companion piece to Chogyam Trungpa s introductory work Based on talks he gave during retreats and seminars, the tone is much conversational and personal Specific topics addressing common struggles like depression bring this book out of the lofty clouds of The Sacred of Path of the Warrior though the Warrior book is excellent in it s own right.

    8. omg, just read it, it s so good seriously, if this subject matter interests you being human , it is worth your time.
