Description About the author Contents
 
The basic teachings of Buddhism as they relate to everyday life--presented by the esteemed Tibetan meditation master

In The Heart of the Buddha, Chogyam Trungpa examines the basic teachings of Buddhism and places them within the context of daily life. Divided into three parts, the book begins with a discussion about the open, inquisitive, and good-humored qualities of the "heart of the Buddha"--an "enlightened gene" that everyone possesses. Next, Chogyam Trungpa moves to the stages of the Buddhist path, presenting the three vehicles--Hinayana, Mahayana, and Vajrayana--that carry the Buddhist practitioner toward enlightenment. Finally, he describes the direct application of Buddhist teachings to topics as varied as relationships, drinking, children, and money.

The Heart of the Buddha reflects Trungpa's great appreciation for Western culture and deep understanding of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, which enabled him to teach Westerners in an effective, contemporary way.
