Summary: "You might be fat, thin, big, small, intelligent, stupid ­whatever you are, there is only one way, unconditional­ly, and that is to begin with the practice of meditation. The practice of meditation is the and only way. Without that, there is no way out and no way in." - CHOGYAM TRUNGPA
Detail: "You might be fat, thin, big, small, intelligent, stupid ­whatever you are, there is only one way, unconditional­ly, and that is to begin with the practice of meditation. The practice of meditation is the and only way. Without that, there is no way out and no way in." - CHOGYAM TRUNGPA According to the Buddha, no one can attain basic sanity or enlightenment without practicing meditation. The teachings given here on the outlook and technique of meditation provide the foun­dation that every practitioner needs to awaken as the Buddha did. Trungpa teaches us to let go of the urge to make meditation serve our ambition; thus we can relax into openness. We are shown how the deliberate practice of mindfulness develops into uncontrived awareness, and we discover the world of insight that awareness reveals. We learn of a subtle psychological stage set that we carry with us everywhere and unwittingly use to structure all our experi­ence-and we find that meditation gradually carries us beyond this and beyond ego altogether to the experience of unconditioned freedom. CHOGYAM TRUNGPA, one of the foremost spiritual teachers of the twentieth century, was renowned for his unique gifts in teaching the Dharma to Westerners. Among his many books are Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism, Shambhala, and Training the Mind.
