Description About the author Contents
 
In wide-ranging essays and interviews, contributors from the fields of Buddhist practice and scholarship, philosophy, the arts, and literature examine the work of a modern geniusÑthe Tibetan Buddhist meditation master Chogyam Trungpa (1939-1987). A pioneer in introducing Buddhism to the West, Trungpa had a distinct knack for breaking down the cultural, historical, and ideological barriers that make any such transmission so difficult today. His skill at communicating in a living, contemporary way to Western students, while remaining faithful to the traditional origins of Buddhism, was paired with an understanding of the modern world of unusual relevance. As a result, his activities in a wide range of areasÑincluding painting, calligraphy, photography, poetry, theater, and business, as well as interreligious dialogue, the creation of Shambhala Training, and the founding of the first Buddhist university in North America offer penetrating insights into the meaning of Buddhism for our world and our culture.

Among the contributions:
¥ Jack Kornfield on the inspiring influence of Trungpa Rinpoche as a beloved friend and respected benefactor
¥ Pema Chodron on his founding of a Western monastic tradition
¥ Reginald A. Ray on Trungpa as a modern exemplar of the ancient tantric ideal
¥ Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche on his Shambhala teachings of spiritual warriorship
¥ Ann Waldman on his poetry and his engagement with avant-garde poets and writers
¥ Meredith Monk on how his Dharma Art teachings inspired her work as a performance artist
¥ Bernie Glassman on Trungpa as a role model in his emphasis on the creation of enlightened society
