The classic guide to enlightened living that first presented the Buddhist path of the warrior to Western readers.
There is a basic human wisdom that can help solve the world’s problems. It doesn’t belong to any one culture or region or religious tradition–though it can be found in many of them throughout history. It’s what Chögyam Trungpa called the sacred path of the warrior.
