Meditation in Action

Meditation in Action by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche is a classic teaching about meditation by a Tibetan master that continues to inspire both beginners and long-time practitioners of Tibetan Buddhist meditation.

Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche shows that practicing meditation extends beyond the formal practice of sitting to build the foundation for compassion, awareness, and creativity in all aspects of life.

His exploration reveals that through simple, direct experience, one can attain real wisdom: the ability to see clearly into situations and deal with them skillfully, without the self-consciousness connected with ego.

He explores the six activities associated with meditation in action:

  1. generosity,
  2. discipline,
  3. patience,
  4. energy,
  5. clarity, and
  6. wisdom.
