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.

Buddhist Teachings for Americans Living in 1970
- Sara "I don't review every book--only books I feel strongly about--hence the many 4-5 star vs 1-2 star reviews. Just my opinions--hope they help."
Important Book, Wrong Reader
The voice irritated me.
Heart of the Buddha, Spiritual Materialism
I've read the book, where I imagined Trungpa Rinpoche's quiet voice, pausing, giving opportunity for openness. This guy reads it as if he's God. The voice is not cool for this book.
Maybe the Sakyong could do it justice as a reader, but I'm not sure. I think Judith Lief would be the best reader for this book + I think Shambhala should consider this in the future for VCTR audiobooks. I won't buy another from this reader.
