About the Author

CH GYAM TRUNGPA (1940-1987)--meditation master, teacher, and artist--founded Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, the first Buddhist-inspired university in North America; the Shambhala Training program; and an international association of meditation centers known as Shambhala International. He is the author of numerous books, including Shambhala- The Sacred Path of the Warrior, Cutting through Spiritual Materialism, and The Myth of Freedom.

THE OPENING THE DHARMA TREASURY EDITORS GROUP was formed by Carolyn Rose Gimian and Judith L. Lief, the two foremost editors of Ch gyam Trungpa Rinpoche, in order to transmit the craft and knowledge of editing to a new generation. The Editors Group comprises dedicated practitioners from far and wide, working together to transcribe, prepare, and publish new volumes from an archive of over a thousand as yet untouched recorded teachings of Ch gyam Trungpa. Members of the group include Jonathan V Daniel, Harry Einhorn, Alicia Fordham, Diana Goetsch, Cassell Gross, Diana Janowitz, Ryan John Jones, Trudee Klautky, Travis May, Ella Milligan, Carla Marie Mueller, Daniel Nguyen, Tillie Perks, Emma Sartwell, Nate Spear, and Jade Weston.


“The teachings in this magical book come from the same period I first met Trungpa Rinpoche, which marked the radical turning point in my life. Reading this brought me right back to those days when he pointed out to me the pitfalls of spiritual materialism and how I could discover my own basic sanity. I hope a new generation of readers can catch the spark from the wisdom they will find here from Trungpa Rinpoche in his truest essence.”—Pema Chödrön, author of When Things Fall Apart

“A book of deep wisdom that offers Trungpa’s signature profundity permeated with humor, Cynicism and Magic illuminates the path of the heart-warrior with crystal clear light. There’s a kind of music under these words—a treasure!”—Devendra Banhart

“This book shows Trungpa Rinpoche’s genius, his superb talent in communicating traditional teachings of the Mahayana buddhadharma. He presents seminal topics in an elegant and easy-to-digest way, always full of humor and common sense. His ability remains unmatched among authors on the subject of buddhadharma. I am so glad that the addition of this book to the collected treasures of Trungpa Rinpoche’s teachings will inspire, educate, and move generations to come.”—Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche, author of Peaceful Heart
