The Heart of the Buddha - coverThe Heart of the Buddha
- Entering the Tibetan Buddhist Path
— by Chögyam Trungpa

This compelling collection of essays, talks, and seminars by Chögyam Trungpa presents the basic teachings of Buddhism as they relate to everyday life.

The book is divided into three parts. In "Personal Journey," the author discusses the qualities of openness, inquisitiveness, and good humor that characterize the enlightened Buddha-nature in everyone.

VajradharaIn "Stages on the Path," he presents the three vehicles - Hinayana, Mahayana, and Vajrayana - that carry the Buddhist practitioner toward enlightenment.

In "Working with Others," he describes the direct application of Buddhist teachings in such areas as relationships, children, and money.

Chögyam Trungpa's great appreciation of Western culture combined with his deep understanding of the Tibetan tradition makes these teachings uniquely accessible to Western readers.
