The Shambhala book and card set offers readers a unique and accessible way to put the principles of the sacred warrior to practice in daily life through a series of slogans or maxims that emphasize facing the world with openness and fearlessness. Through these teachings, readers can start to gain personal freedom and power, overcome negative habitual patterns, find the sacred dimension of everyday life, and discover the basic goodness of human life. The box includes: 53 four-color cards, with a Shambhala warrior slogan on one side and commentary from the Tibetan Buddhist master Ch gyam Trungpa on the reverse side A fold-out card stand An 16-page booklet with instructions on how the slogans can be applied to one's own life throughout the day A 256-page unabridged edition of Trungpa's classic book SHAMBHALA: THE SACRED PATH OF THE WARRIOR The majority of the slogans and commentary are drawn from SHAMBHALA: THE SACRED PATH OF THE WARRIOR . The remainder of the slogans, which have never before been available to a general audience, were composed by Ch gyam Trungpa to be used in Shambhala Training, a program that he developed as a way to train people in the path and practice of warriorship.
