The Sanity We Are Born With : A Buddhist Approach to Psychology -- by Chogyam Trungpa
The Sanity We Are Born With : A Buddhist Approach to Psychology -- by Chogyam Trungpa

Buddhist psychology teaches that all of us are born with "basic sanity," described by Chogyam Trungpa as basic goodness, healthiness, and wakefulness.  Helping ourselves and others to contact this ground of sanity and health is the subject of this book.  In twenty articles drawn from The Collected Works of Chogyam Trungpa, the author presents insights into meditation, mind, and psychology that he shared with Western psychologists, psychotherapists, and students of Buddhist meditation in America in the 1970's and 80's.  Fundamentally the book is about how all of us can strengthen our inherent human sanity, but it also addresses the specific needs of those in profound psychological distress.  Additionally, it speaks to the concerns of psychotherapists and other mental health professionals, as well as a general audience interested in the application of Buddhist psychology and meditation to interacting with others in a healing relationship.

"Chogyam Trungpa was the first Buddhist master to present Buddhism in a psychological language that spoke directly to the Western mind. This highly recommended vloume, which brings together his penetrating views on Buddhist and Western psychology, will be of great interest to psychotherapists, students of Dharma, and anyone who is concerned with the relationship between the native sun of awakened wisdom within us and the psychological clouds that obscure its light."
-- John Welwood, author of Toward a Psychology of Awakening
