Overview

Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior by Chogyam Trungpa

There is a basic human wisdom that can help solve the world’s problems. It doesn’t belong to any one culture or region or religious tradition—though it can be found in many of them throughout history. It’s what Chögyam Trungpa called the sacred path of the warrior. The sacred warrior conquers the world not through violence or aggression, but through gentleness, courage, and self-knowledge. The warrior discovers the basic goodness of human life and radiates that goodness out into the world for the peace and sanity of others. That’s what the Shambhala teachings are all about, and this is the book that has been presenting them to a wide and appreciative audience for more than twenty years.

The principals of the book are worth reading, but it was difficult to follow because of the way it was written. I would have liked to see more specifics and less analogies. It would have held my interest more if it had simply portrayed its philosophies with examples rather than being a book of examples.

This book has opened many a puritanical Christian's mind without making them losetheir religion. It's purpose is to bring the reader to a very subtle realization that nothing is as it seems, and that we truly do create our own personal reality. Fanciful, but always grounded, Trungpa's logic and powers of observation are basic in this book, a very much needed balm in the moral and psychological jungle that is 21st century America. Highly recommended.

I highly recommend this book to all those who seek to evolve mentally, spiritually and emotionally. I refer to this book often to remind myself that past wounds are healed not only with time but also with awareness.
