Meditation in Action (40th Anniversary Edition) Author: Chögyam Trungpa
This classic teaching by a Tibetan master continues to inspire both beginners and long-time practitioners of Buddhist meditation. Chögyam 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 skilfully, without the self-consciousness connected with ego.
Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche (1940-1987), was born in Tibet and was regarded as a tulku (“incarnation”) of the 14th-century Tibetan lama Kunga Gyaltsen. He was abbot of the Surmang Monastery in Tibet, but fled Tibet after the Chinese took control of the region in 1959.
After his daring escape to India, he moved to England where he was educated at Oxford University, later moving to Scotland and the United States, founding monasteries and meditation centers. He also founded Shambhala International as an organization to disseminate Buddhist teachings- especially the practice of meditation. He is renowned for his contribution to the understanding of Buddhism in North America and the introduction of authentic Buddhist practice throughout the West.
