About the book in January:
Book Title: Shambala: The sacred path of the warrior
Author: Chogyam Trungpa
In this practical guide to enlightened living, Chögyam Trungpa offers an inspiring vision for our
time, based on the figure of the sacred warrior. In ancient times, the warrior learned to master
the challenges of life, both on and off the battlefield. He acquired a sense of personal freedom
and power—not through violence or aggression, but through gentleness, courage, and self-
knowledge. The Japanese samurai, the warrior-kings of Tibet, the knights of medieval Europe,
and the warriors of the Native American tribes are a few examples of this universal tradition of
wisdom. With this book the warrior’s path is opened to contemporary men and women in
search of self-mastery and greater fulfillment. Interpreting the warrior’s journey in modern
terms, Trungpa discusses such skills as synchronizing mind and body, overcoming habitual
behaviors, relaxing within discipline, facing the world with openness and fearlessness, and
finding the sacred dimension of everyday life. Above all, Trungpa shows that in discovering the
basic goodness or human life, the warrior learns to radiate that goodness out into the world for
the peace and sanity of others. The Shambhala teachings—named for a legendary Himalayan
kingdom where prosperity and happiness reign—thus point to the potential for enlightened conduct that exists within every human being. “The basic wisdom of Shambhala” Trungpa
writes, “is that in this world, as it is, we can find a good and meaningful human life that will also
serve others. That is our true richness”.
