Illusion's Game

Illusion's Game - The Life and Teaching of Naropa — by Chogyam Trungpa

In this work Trungpa tulku reveals how the spiritual path is a raw and rugged "unlearning" process that draws us away from the comfort of conventional expectations and conceptual attitudes toward a naked encounter with reality. He opens to Western students of Buddhism the path of devotion and surrender to the guru as the embodiment and representative of reality.
