あらすじ・解説

ChgyamTrungpa's unique ability to express the essence of Buddhist teachings in the language and imagery of modern American culture makes his books among the most accessible works of Buddhist philosophy. Here Trungpa explores the true meaning of freedom, showing us how our preconceptions, attitudes, and even our spiritual practices can become chains that bind us to repetitive patterns of frustration and despair. This edition features a new foreword by Pema Chödrön, a close student of Trungpa and the best-selling author of When Things Fall Apart.

Best Beginner Buddha Book

A great read for those new to Buddhism ... aside from the pronunciation of his name :-), Chögyam Trungpa is very accessible and engaging for the layperson, but doesn’t water down or lose any of the key elements of Buddhist teachings, highly recommend.

Good teachings wrapped in too many descriptions

There are very valuable teachings here, but wrapped in too many descriptions of stages in the path, like the things one is likely to think and feel when reaching such and such stage.

For me, personally, those descriptions are a waste of time. I would much more like the core teachings by themselves. Then again, this would be a pamphlet instead of a book.

Great work by the narrator. The pace and the pronunciation were very enjoyable.

Advanced level

The biggest problem with this audio book is that it does NOT include the forward by Pema Chrodron as advertised. I really want to hear what and has to say about this book. So that is a major disappointment I think Audible should rectify.

Talking about the content, I admit I was over my head with this book. Chogyam Trungpa starts out by saying we need to first look at what Buddhism is. So it sounds like we're going to start out gently. But soon it gets into topics that may make more sense for advanced practicioners, but I wouldn't know.

Still, I have listened twice and likely will again in a few months. This all sounds highly unorthodox and really remarkable to me.

Chatham Trungpa himself was a paradox, so that's another layer on this. An alcoholic who renounced his monastic vows and got married? But still was regarded as a master, for lack of a better term?

The book is as remarkable as the man and has taught me a lot. Highly recommended. A bit mind bending.

Buddhist Teachings for Americans Living in 1970

This recording was very dated. It comes from material that was written and taught in the early 1970s. Much of the tone and wording used were geared to that period of time in mind set and focus. If you happened to have been an adult in the late 1960s and early 1970s you will understand what I mean the minute you start listening.

The teachings are very anti faith and religion. It does not matter what religion you follow--if you are a person of faith you will most likely be offended by the ideology presented and the instruction to stop "all that nonsense and pain creation". To me this "all or none" approach is limiting and unnecessary. It is possible to practice meditation and mindfulness living in addition to being a faith based person.

I agree with another reviewer that Roger Clark, the narrator has perfected the "voice of god-style" of reading. This further adds a level of strangeness to the experience with all the "there is no God" info presented here. Another reviewer suggested that the teachings take on the tone and feeling of "cult instruction". I think that goes a bit too far, but I can see where they got that idea.

I think that better editing of this material would have improved the accessibility of the information for modern westerners. The recording has wonderful teachings and insights--you just need to be able to sort out the wheat from the chaff. Discernment is necessary here--as it is in all things. A mixed experience.

Fantastic and difficult

...like all books of C. Trungpa. It cuts through all fantasies one might have about the path to "enlightenment".

For more experienced practitioners, I believe.

Great information with good coverage of the subject matter. A bit dry, so you may wish to space it out instead of binge listening.

Enlightening. A wholly separate way of looking...

at things versus the Western world's typical views. I will look for more of this author's books to gain more insight. Very intriguing.

Very good and important book

I have now listened to this book a couple of times and i find it really important to my studies of meditation and Buddhist teachings. I find Trungpa books very direct. I will be listening to this several times.
