About the Sacred Path
The Sacred Path series deepens the warrior's journey by introducing the root Shambhala teachings and their commentaries. The teachings are based on a societal vision and aspiration to bring forth the goodness of human beings as well as the goodness of human society.
During a series of visionary experiences that took place between 1976 and 1980, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche wrote down the four root Shambhala texts. The Sacred Path is based on these texts. The Sacred Path presents extensive commentaries by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche on how these teachings are relevant in modern times.
