It has taken me a while to read this book, but at last I finished it today. The book is dense - every sentence needs to be savoured. This is why it has taken me a while to read. More than the other books I have read of Trungpa Rinpoche, this one gave me a sense of knowing this great teacher. It is an intimate insight into his teaching and I felt as if I were in the audience. The explanation of his approach to ego as our great hindrance is the clearest I have read (or the first time I have been c ...more

A disclaimer: CTR is my fearless leader, in a sense, so my giving this book a single star crowds me with conflictatory impulses. My goal in choosing this book was to get a better grasp on what challenges an ordinary house-holder faces daily and how she still can identify herself as a Shambhalian. For whatever reason, these lectures read ploddingly; lacking CTR's usual brilliance instead they struck me as dull, lacking insightfulness, incoherent ... and I recalled the many stories one hears about ...more

Some people take themselves too seriously so much so that they will write a chapter on the "myth of happiness" and lo and behold you are reading two kinds of materialism: physical materialism and psychological materialism...At that point, you would have to be really desperate in order for you to keep reading this mumbo jumbo and plod through a book such as that! No sir! thanks! I have tons of more important books to read.

I appreciate Shambhala's enthusiasm for CTR, who was a great teacher, but I think they should accept that he wrote and published all the books he had in him. These collections of talks don't work as books; they are unstructured and meandering. Not the right format.

Great previously unpublished lectures from Trungpa on the balance of real world life that embodies a warrior's courage with a the wisdom of a gentle heart.
