Journey Without Goal: The Tantric Wisdom of the Buddha -- by Chögyam Trungpa

"When we talk about the tantric tradition, we are not talking about playing with sex or aggression or colors of the phenomenal world. People have projected a lot of ideas onto the vajrayana, such as that it is an expression of wildness and freedom. However, the cultivation of vajrayana has to be based on a very subtle, definite, ordinary, and real foundation. Otherwise, we are lost. The vajrayana teachings are extremely sacred and, in some sense, inaccessible. Generations and generations of Buddhist practitioners have put tremendous energy and effort into tantra, so we cannot afford to make our studies into supermarket merchandise." -- Chögyam Trungpa

Based on the author's talks at Naropa University, this volume introduces the reader to the principles of tantra, based on the practice of meditation, which leads to the discovery of egolessness. Written for the student of Buddhism rather than the scholar, Journey Without Goal demystifies the vajrayana and at the same time affirms the power and sacredness of its ancient teaching.

Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche (1939-1987)--meditation master, scholar, and artist--was well-known throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe as a Buddhist teacher as well as founder and president of Vajradhatu, Naropa Institute, and Shambhala Training.
