Editorial Reviews

Review

“Trungpa’s notion of dharma art is an approach to art as meditation, an attitude of directness and unselfconsciousness in creative work. Lief’s inspired selection and careful editing make this an essential book for those committed to view that the artist should be a spiritual teacher.”—Publishers Weekly

About the Author

Chögyam Trungpa (1940–1987)—meditation master, teacher, and artist—founded Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, the first Buddhist-inspired university in North America; the Shambhala Training program; and an international association of meditation centers known as Shambhala International. He is the author of numerous books including Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior, Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism, and The Myth of Freedom.

This is a serious guide towards meshing creativity harmoniously with life. The concepts here are nothing like an occidental art class where you talk of composition and form, but the ideas here could potentially free the inner-creator to realize full potential.
I believe this book to offer something truly precious, advice worth cherishing.
(Not precious dainty but a real cosmic gift)

The earlier printing has nicer quality reproductions of the images...

I was delighted to see a new edition of Dharma Art by crazy wisdom Tibetan teacher, Chogyam Trungpa. His brief life has shone a fresh and awake light in our world. This is an important addition to Trungpa's Shambhala vision and books. May all beings benefit from this vision as it dispells the darkness of confusion.

This is a book about ChogyamTrungpa Rinpoche's teachings about dharma art, his teachings on applying Buddhist wisdom to the arts...the creative process in general. It can help one learn about both ends of the creative process, the creator end and the appreciating end. It does this by exploring the nature of perception. As my 5 stars indicate, I highly reccomend this book. ...as well as going to a Shambhala center and taking a Shambhala art class to complement the book. ([...])

This is a slow read, much like some of Weston's day book writing. I am reminded of Weston and Minor White when I read this. This is a good read for any one interested in the founder - inspirational leader of the Contemplative photography movement aka Miksang
