Product description


"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.
