A Shambhala Classics edition of the classic guide to enlightened living that
first presented the Buddhist path of the warrior to Western readers.
In this best-selling guide to enlightened living, Chögyam Trungpa—meditation master, teacher, and artist—offers an inspiring vision for our time. In ancient times, the warrior acquired a sense of courage and power—not through violence or aggression, but through gentleness, courage, and self-knowledge. Interpreting the warrior’s journey in contemporary terms, Trungpa shows that through discovering the basic goodness of human life, the warrior learns to radiate that goodness out into the world for the peace and sanity of others.
