In celebration of its 40th anniversary, the original unabridged audiobook guide to meditation has been released with Meditation in Action, written by Tibetan meditation expert and Buddhist Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche with a foreword and the narration by Samuel Bercholz. This guide gives not just the skills involved in true meditation, but examines the entire concept as a whole. You will learn a vast amount of wisdom from a man that took his knowledge of meditation and Buddhism and spread it throughout the west in a time when eastern philosophies were largely met with scepticism. Available now from Audible.

Summary

This classic teaching by a Tibetan master continues to inspire both beginners and long-time practitioners of Buddhist meditation. Chgyam Trungpa Rinpoche shows that meditation extends beyond the formal practice of sitting to build the foundation for compassion, awareness, and creativity in all aspects of life. He explores the six activities associated with meditation in action - generosity, discipline, patience, energy, clarity, and wisdom - revealing that through simple, direct experience, one can attain real wisdom: the ability to see clearly into situations and deal with them skillfully, without the self-consciousness connected with ego.

Very good

I have been studying Tibetan Buddhism for over 15 years and I just found this book so clear and it really helped to deepen my understanding. This book is a great foundation for those that are new to meditation and those with some knowledge. I will listen to this again and again. Trungpa is amazing.

A deeper understanding of Meditation!

I really enjoyed this book, narrator was a bit monotonous at times, but I have a deeper understanding of Meditation now, which is cool!

Learn what to do with your life's manure

I got this because I finished reading Shambhala way of the spiritual warrior and I immediately needed more. There is something so grounded about his writing. Spiritual writers are usually half way up their own butts at the very least. Chogyam's instructions are based in Eastern Philosophy but they feel more based in Human philosophy.

Turns out Chogyam was also a super controversial which I love (give his wiki a read). But that makes me like him more.

Insightful

I've heard it 4 times and I get something from it each time. Just go with the flow. Lose our mind gain our senses. Stop using our mind and trust and use your senses.
