This influential spiritual classic offers a presentation of Buddhist teachings accessible to seekers of any faith. Tibetan meditation master Chgyam Trungpa presents an overview of the spiritual path and warns of common mistakes along that path. He describes the problem he calls 'spiritual materialism' - strengthening our egocentricity through spiritual techniques while deceiving ourselves into thinking we are developing spiritually.
Chogyam Trungpa (1940-1987)--meditation master, teacher, and artist--founded Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, the first Buddhist-inspired university in North America; the Shambhala Training program; and an international association of meditation centers known as Shambhala International. He is the author of numerous books including Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior, Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism, and The Myth of Freedom.
