About the Author

Rigdzin Shikpo has spent more than fifty years studying and practicing Buddhism. When he met his principal teacher, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, in 1965, he had already trained with several Theravadan monks over the course of nine years and was closely associated with the Buddhist Society in London. He is the Dharma director of the Longchen Foundation, a community of Buddhist teachers and students practicing meditation in the Mahayana and Dzogchen traditions of Buddhism. Francesca Fremantle is a scholar and translator of Sanskrit and Tibetan works of Hindu and Buddhist tantra, and was a student of Chogyam Trungpa for many years. Fremantle received her doctorate from the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. She is a teacher with the Longchen Foundation, established by Chogyam Trungpa and Dilgo Khyentse, and directed by Rigdzin Shikpo. She currently lives in London.


"One of the finest, most compelling books on Buddhism I have ever read. In its simplicity and clarity, in its depth and extraordinary subtlety, it surpasses most of what has been written on the subjtect. Expressing the profound essence of Tibetan Dzogchen in contemporary, highly experiential language, the author not only opens the innermost mysteries of Tibetan Buddhism, but shows us how we ourselves may follow the path to complete human realization. This book expresses the remarkable, unique, life-transforming dharma of his own teacher, Chogyam Trungpa, who taught meditation as a way to open up the full, liberating depth of our human experience as modern people. In his study and devoted practice, Rigdzin Shikpo has been working on this book for forty years and the result is brilliant and joyful, and truly stunning."--Reginald A. Ray, author of Indestructible Truth "'Never turn away'--a simple suggestion, encouraging us to enter into direct communion with all aspects of our lives. Why? The answer is delivered here with brilliant, clear teaching that is inspiring, practical, and valuable for all meditators."--Larry Rosenberg, author of Breath by Breath "These teachings are brought vividly to life in Rigdzin Shikpo's characteristic style, which is very clear, direct, simple and down to earth. Making inspired connections across the boundaries of Buddhist thought, the techniques described here are linked to the four noble truths, the traditional basis of the Buddha's teaching. For readers new to meditation or to Buddhism, this book will guide them straight to its heart, while it will bring fresh perspectives and illuminating insights even to experienced practitioners."--from the foreword by Francesca Fremantle "A wonderful guide to putting the Buddhist teachings into practice, unique in its clarity, profundity, and heart."--Douglas J. Penick, author of The Warrior Song of King Gesar and of The Asia Society's production of The Tibetan Book of the Dead (music by Philip Glass) "This is a timely book, one simultaneously simple and profound. It is for those beginning the Buddha's path or wondering whether to embark on it; and for others who have been involved for some time, it provides inspiration and confirmation that their endeavour is worthwhile."--Caroline Seymour, Middle Way: Journal of the Buddhist Society in London
