Description About the author Contents
 
The Collected Works of Chogyam Trungpa brings together in eight volumes the writings of one of the first and most influential and inspirational Tibetan teachers to present Buddhism in the West. Organized by theme, the collection includes full-length books as well as articles, seminar transcripts, poems, plays, and interviews, many of which have never before been available in book form. From memoirs of his escape from Chinese-occupied Tibet to insightful discussions of psychology, mind, and meditation; from original verse and calligraphy to the esoteric lore of tantric Buddhism - the impressive range of Trungpa's vision, talents, and teachings is showcased in this landmark series.

Volume Four presents introductory writings on vajrayana tantric teachings, clearing up Western misconceptions about Buddhist tantra. It includes three full-length books,(Journey without Goal; The Lion's Roar; The Dawn of Tantraand a 1976 interview in which Chogyam Trungpa offers penetrating comments on the challenging of bringing the vajrayana teachings to America.
