Product Overview

The slogans contained in this book are designed to awaken the heart and cultivate love and kindness toward others. They are revolutionary in that practicing them fosters abandonment of personal territory in relating to others and an understanding of the world as it is.
The fifty-nine provocative slogans presented here--each with a commentary by the Tibetan meditation master Chogyam Trungpa--have been used by Tibetan Buddhists for eight centuries to help meditation students remember and focus on important principles and practices of mind training. They emphasize meeting the ordinary situations of life with intelligence and compassion under all circumstances. Slogans include, "Don''t be swayed by external circumstances," "Be grateful to everyone," and "Always maintain only a joyful mind."
This edition contains a foreword by Pema Chodron.

Author Info
Chogyam Trungpa
Born in Tibet, Trungpa studied and became a lama but fled to India in 1959 along with the Dalai Lama. He went to England, attended Oxford University, and later founded a center for Eastern studies in Scotland. This was the '60s, when there were scores of interested novices, but many did not meet standards. Rinpoche wrote several books, and was seen as a holy man, but it is said he lived a lifestyle of excess. He married and went to the United States around 1970, where he founded the Naropa Institute and several other important centers of meditation. He is regarded as one of the most revered figures in transmitting Eastern thought to Westerners.
Born in Tibet, Chogyam Trungpa fled to India in 1959, along with the Dalai Lama. He went to England, where he attended Oxford University, and later founded a center for Eastern studies in Scotland. During the 1960s many novices sought him out, but Trungpa found that many did not meet his strict standards. Trungpa himself was sometimes criticized for living a life of excess. He married and migrated to the United States around 1970, where he founded the important Naropa Institute and other important centers of meditation. He is regarded as one of the key figures in transmitting Eastern thought to Westerners. His most autobiographical book is BORN IN TIBET. His best-selling SHAMBHALA: THE SACRED PATH OF THE WARRIOR is a contemporary classic that offers a model for modern living based on the enlightened warrior.
Pema Chodron has been the director of the Gampo Abbey, a Buddhist monastery in Nova Scotia. She studied under Chogyam Trungpa. Chodron is associated with the concept of "loving-kindness." Her books are popular with readers of Eastern thought and she is a frequent seminar and retreat leader.
