"All is made painfully clear--we are routed out of our little 'cubby holes', all of our excuses are brought out into the open and exposed for what they are. . . . If it is reality you want and not illusion, this is it. . . . An ego-shattering experience."-- The Middle Way
Chgyam Trungpa's books are among the most accessible works of Buddhist philosophy. In THE MYTH OF FREEDOM, Trungpa explores the true meaning of freedom, showing us how our preconceptions, attitudes, and even our spiritual practices can become chains that bind us to repetitive patterns of frustration and despair. This new edition features a foreword by Pema Chdrn, a close student of Trungpa.See all Product description

This book is entitled The Myth of Freedom because it is about freedom's opposite; it is a description of the various mental/spiritual prisons in which we can find ourselves, and it looks at the questions we inevitably ask when we realize that we are "doing time": How did we get into this prison? How do we get out?
Chogyam Trungpa provides explanations and details which are simple to make sense of and make use of, and his book comes across in the same ways that its author did when he lived in this world: straightforward, honest, and exceedingly kind. I rate The Myth of Freedom a five star read, only because there is no such thing as a ten star read. Do I think you should buy it? Yes! Yes! Yes!
So happy not to have grown too sophisticated for this book. I rate this a five star read, only because there is no such thing as a ten star read.
