Chögyam Trungpa'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.
