Myth of Freedom & Way of Meditation

Author(s): TRUNGPA, CHOGYA

Religion and Spirituality

Featuring a new foreword by Pema Ch dr n, this Ch gyam Trungpa classic explores the meaning of freedom in the profound context of Tibetan Buddhism

Freedom is generally thought of as the ability to achieve goals and satisfy desires. But what are the sources of these goals and desires? If they arise from ignorance, habitual patterns, and negative emotions, is the freedom to pursue these goals true freedom--or is it just a myth?

In The Myth of Freedom and the Way of Meditation, Ch gyam Trungpa explores the true meaning of freedom, showing us how our attitudes, preconceptions, and even our spiritual practices can become chains that bind us to repetitive patterns of frustration and despair. He also explains how meditation can bring into focus the causes of frustration, and how these negative forces can aid us in advancing toward true freedom. Trungpa's unique ability to express the essence of Buddhist teachings in the language and imagery of contemporary American culture makes this book one of the best, most accessible sources of the Buddhist doctrine ever written.
