Publisher's Summary

This classic teaching by a Tibetan master continues to inspire both beginners and long-time practitioners of Buddhist meditation. Chgyam Trungpa Rinpoche shows that meditation extends beyond the formal practice of sitting to build the foundation for compassion, awareness, and creativity in all aspects of life. He explores the six activities associated with meditation in action - generosity, discipline, patience, energy, clarity, and wisdom - revealing that through simple, direct experience, one can attain real wisdom: the ability to see clearly into situations and deal with them skillfully, without the self-consciousness connected with ego.

    "Learn what to do with your life's manure"

    I got this because I finished reading Shambhala way of the spiritual warrior and I immediately needed more. There is something so grounded about his writing. Spiritual writers are usually half way up their own butts at the very least. Chogyam's instructions are based in Eastern Philosophy but they feel more based in Human philosophy.

    Turns out Chogyam was also a super controversial which I love (give his wiki a read). But that makes me like him more.

    "Insightful"

    I've heard it 4 times and I get something from it each time. Just go with the flow. Lose our mind gain our senses. Stop using our mind and trust and use your senses.

    "Great classic of meditation"

    Excellent narration that added to the talks with its gradual and patient ambiance. Of course, the wisdom in these talks speaks for itself. The best introduction to meditation I've found.

    "Must read for anyone interested in spiritual development"

    Must read for anyone interested in spiritual development. It is written without the marketing hype, instead full of mini stories and paralalism, to help the reader not only understanding the point, but connecting to the point in such a way that one remembers better the 'why' part. Highly recommended.

    "Very good"

    I have been studying Tibetan Buddhism for over 15 years and I just found this book so clear and it really helped to deepen my understanding. This book is a great foundation for those that are new to meditation and those with some knowledge. I will listen to this again and again. Trungpa is amazing.
