5.0 von 5 Sternen a beginners guide to Shambhala
Shambhala: The Sacred path of the Warrior is a book I read on whimsy. I read this book originally because of the relationship Trungpa had with Allen Ginsberg.

I've read this book three times and took Shambala Training. Many years ago, I saw a young girl sitting on a park bench reading this book. I thought "uh-oh!"

5.0 von 5 Sternen a beginners guide to Shambhala, 22. Juni 2000
Shambhala: The Sacred path of the Warrior is a book I read on whimsy. I read this book originally because of the relationship Trungpa had with Allen Ginsberg. I was curious so I picked up a copy of this book. It was enlightening because this is the real deal unlike a lot of the half baked Zen Buddhism invoked by many beatnik types. One need not drop acid to gain wisdom here. If you want the hokey, trippie hippie Buddhism, forget this book. Trungpa is writing of an ancient code of warriorship. It is an inward, spiritual journey drawn from the Tibetan warrior culture. One who reads this and learns the lessons it teaches will be assisted in overcoming self doubt and negativity. This is not a book of violence. It is really a guide towards overcoming violence. It is about learning mastery over oneself. I was inspired to be better after reading this book. It made me believe in the possibility of transcendence. That is saying something, too. It is a very motivational book.

3.0 von 5 Sternen The jury is still out, 15. Mai 1999
I've read this book three times and took Shambala Training. Many years ago, I saw a young girl sitting on a park bench reading this book. I thought "uh-oh!" Chogyam Trungpa was considered one of the greatest meditation masters in American Buddhism. The Karmapa approved of him totally. He was a brillant man who understood the inhibitions and neurosis of Westerners possibly better than any teacher who has taught Tibetan Buddhism in the West. He helped me a great deal. I no longer became embarrassed about being a human being. His books are and were great. But sadly enough, we have to face facts. I have talked to many many people in the last twenty years who knew him. His conduct was, to say the least, deplorable. He constantly violated four out of the five Buddhist precepts. Buy the book. All of Trungpa's books and his teachings were fundamentally kind and compassionate. Just do what the Dalai Lama suggests. Be wary with any personal teacher. Best of luck.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book has been my daily study guide for 25 years, 6. Juni 1998
Von Ein Kunde
I rely on this book, it has been my companion for many years everywhere I go. I have given away dozens of copies, in various printings, to friends and foe.
What makes this 'pocket classic' edition special is the package: it is tiny. It really does fit in a small pocket; it is about the size of a deck of cards (I think - it has been a long time since I have seen a deck of cards!). But despite its minuscule size, it is easy to read, the print is clear and simple.
The content, too, is clear and simple. The Path of the Warrior is a way of being in the worl. It is not a religion, but a path to spirit. It is said to be very old (from well before Buddhism) and it is completely contemporaneous.
If your eyes are not as good as they were or as they should be, you should buy the more normal size book. But, definitely, buy it! It will change your life.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An essential work...from a warrior's perspective, 22. Juni 2000
Von 
Sanjeev S. Selvaraj (Boston, MA) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
Need I summarize or paraphrase any more of this wonderful book? Need I tout the wisdom contained in this small volume any more than what has already been said by the other dozen or so reviews? I wish to offer a different perspective, if I may: that of a martial artist and a warrior. I have been a student of Korean and Japanese martial arts for well over a decade, with special emphasis on the spiritual and philosophical side of the arts. The Japanese concept of Bushido, the way of the warrior, has been an especially powerful guiding force in my life, as well as in the lives of many of my fellow martial arts students, philosophy students, and close loved ones. Duty, honor, humility, and loyalty, as taught in Bushdo, are among the cornerstones of this way of life and mode of thought; and these concepts do, indeed, mean virtually everything to the modern-day warrior.
So where does this work fit in? It can quite easily and effectively influence all people's lives for the better. This book teaches that we can become free of our fear in order to become "gentle and genuine". Thus awakening the goodness inherent within her/himself, the warrior becomes free to help those around her or him to achieve such enlightenment.
Reviews such as these simply cannot do such teaching proper justice. The impact it has on warriors in today's world is extremely deep, on a personal and emotional level. Heck, it even made me cry a couple times! So, to summarize, this book is indeed a boon for all people, regardless of faith. But it is my sincere belief that to a true warrior, martial artist or not, this book is absolutely essential for defining one's path, choosing which wars to fight, and ultimately for seeking peace.

5.0 von 5 Sternen If you are reading this now then your search is complete., 9. Juli 1998
"The Shambhala teachings are founded on the premise that there is basic human wisdom that can help to solve the world's problems. This wisdom does not belong to any one culture or religion, nor does it come only from the West or the East. Rather, it is a tradition of human warriorship that has existed in many cultures at many times throughout history". - Chogyam Trungpa
The book looks at the principles of warriorship, and this is non-aggressive, no swords and daggers here.
I read this book and it was like having spent my whole life walking from place to place. Then one day being given a bicycle to travel around. And one night, whilst asleep, dreaming of the awesome speed I was now able to travel at, someone sneaks into my garage and fits a turbo charged, jet powered, rocket engine.
I would recommend this book to anyone, and have been doing, if you are reading this now then your search is complete, there is no need to go any further. Put it in your shopping basket and get ready for the rollercoaster ride of your life.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Sacred Warrior - Purity of Heart, Nobility of Soul, 26. Februar 1999
Enlightening ! Full of Wisdom ! Buy It ! Make a Difference ... for your self ... and for society ! This book was first given to me by a Tibetan Master, Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche, in 1985 when I asked him about Shambala (the enlightened society). Jamgon Kongtrul was a living example of compassion and wisdom. Even though he did not know me as I was just one among one a crowd, he immediately gave me this enlightening book. Since then, I have been buying it and giving it to many people. It is his legacy. (Trunpa and Jamgon comes from the same Tibetan Buddhist lineage.) This book is not about following a religious dogma or path. It is about how to live a dignified and meaningful human existence. The sacred warrior is not only brave and honorable but gentle and kind at the same time. The sacred warrior do not live in a world of deceit and superficiality. She or he is a geniune human being who is always considerate to others and her/his environment. Trungpa says that the bravest warrior is the one who can open her/his heart to others and wears no masks nor armor to hide her/his weakness. We all have the inherent potential to be sacred warriors. And by doing so, we will help contribute to make the world a better place to live in. Trunpa says that instead of trying very hard to change other people, our society, our families, and situations, we should first change ourselves and our negative attitudes first. It is only when we change our innermost selves and our myopic views of life that we can make a difference and geniunely help transform our society to a better place to live in. When we choose to be sacred warriors, that will be our lifelong existentialist quest. Be prepared for a new way of living human existence.

Von Ein Kunde
Follow the advice in this book and you too will find a path of sanity through our chaotic times. Trungpa's warrior posses a gentle heart and finds strength in kindness instead of anger and hatred. By showing you the sacredness of the simple things in life, Trungpa leads you through the confusing and conflicting jungle of our Western ego-centric society towards true enlightenment.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The very basics and overview of an overwhelming topic, 19. Mai 1998
Von Ein Kunde
This book gives a introductory into a topic that can not be comprehended by books alone. It shows you how to take joy in whatever the situation, as well as the vastness of our minds. Although this book doesn't actually show you how to discover and invoke magic, it does start you on the path to discovering it yourself. I am finding it easier to go to bed, to wake up, and to leave stress at the place I recieved it. Colors have more of a burning sensation in my mind rather than just a natural ability that I haven't given a thought to since birth. It incorporates the real world into the world of Shambhala. Another great thing is through the meditation techniquies given in the text, I can sleep for six hours and feel like ten. I definatly recommend this book for the beginning Shambhala warrior, the person who feels they are drowning in their own world, or the average person who wants an enlightening experience.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Shambhala may help one to live life to the fullest., 24. Oktober 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Chogyam Trungpa's book, Shambhala : The Sacred Path of the Warrior, is a must-read, especially in light of the tragedy in Rwanda and the embarrassment of the Canadian army in Somalia. We must endeavor to overcome old ways that do harm to the way of the warrior, and practise the bright shining path that is the Shambhala path. Chogyam's words are best not read once, but many times until his words are lived out. This book is recommended reading for anyone who wishes to understand the true path of warriorship in times of peace.
