Description About the author
" Dharma Art" refers to creative works that spring from the awakened meditative state, characterizrd by directness, unselfconsciousness, and nonagression. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche shows that dharma art provides a vehicle to appreciate the nature of things as they are and express it without any struggle or desire toachieve. A work of dharma art brings out the goodness and dignity of the situation it refelects-dignity that comes from the artist's interest in the details of life and sense of appreciation for experience. At the same time, the author stresses the need for artists to study their craft, develop skill , and absorp knowledge and insight passed down by tradition. And, finally, he extends the principle of dharma art to everyday life, showing how any activity can provide an oppurtunity to relaxand open ourselves to the phenomenal world.
Chogyam Trungpa founded the Naropa Institute in Boulder, Colorado; Shambala Training; and Vajradhatu, an international association of meditation centers. Among his many books are Shambala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior; Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism, and Meditation in Action.
