Reviews of : Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism by Chögyam Trungpa PDF Book
Inside this Book – I see it happen with my yoga students and peers all the time: they practice yoga for some period of time, then start getting really excited about the spiritual side of yoga, and then start doing all this reading and doing all these other practices and making all these rules that they believe they must follow in order to “stay on this spiritual path.” And it’s like as soon as they start adding all this other stuff, they lose the spiritual high that they got in the first place, so instead of going back to the simple method, they add more stuff and more stuff and they must meditate and practice every single day and avoid certain foods and beat themselves up if they have certain thoughts or emotions and it’s all So Serious and Heavy and a Big Deal, when in reality, it’s self-defeating.
Inside this book –Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism PDF Book by Chögyam Trungpa – I love this book. I first read it in the context of a reading group, and the collective feeling of discomfort in our discussions was palatable. As it moves along, the book becomes a little more complex. Trungpa goes further into Buddhism, to its psychology and understanding of mind, to the four noble truths, techniques of meditation, shunyata (nothingness), Buddhist ontology and epistemology (a philosophical turn), to compassion and even a brief bit on the tantra. This book is rich, and introduces a great deal. Any ideas of spirituality as something out there to attain, or as some kind of “self improvement” will be quickly struck down. This is definitely not a book for the new-agey, feel-good crowd.
But on second thought, maybe it is.
