DescriptionIn Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior Chögyam Trungpa offers an inspiring and practical guide to enlightened living based on the Shambhala journey of warriorship, a secular path taught internationally through the Shambhala Training program. Great Eastern Sun: The Wisdom of Shambhala is a continuation of that path. Shambhala was an exploration of human goodness and its potential to create an enlightened society--a state that the author calls "nowness." And in that spirit of nowness, Great Eastern Sun --which is accessible to meditators and nonmeditators alike--centers on the question, "Since we're here, how are we going to live from now on?"
