Secret Beyond Thought
Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
Our Price: $28.00 USD

Product Code: BVE184


Available to all, but particularly recommended for students doing the four karmas fire puja or beginning Chakrasamvara practice.

Secret Beyond Thought is an edited transcript of a two-talk public seminar Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche taught in Boston, Massachusetts in February 1971. The first talk is an excellent introduction to the tantric principles of the chakra system. Specifically, the Vidyadhara addresses how it embodies the five awakened aspects of body, speech, mind, quality, and action. The second talk offers a unique teaching on the four karmas—or enlightened activities—and how they can either conquer or be perverted by the four maras, our personal demons and habitual patterns of ego-fixation.

These two teachings, among the earliest the Vidyadhara gave in North America, provide a glimpse into the profound trust Chögyam Trungpa had in the possibility that genuine buddhadharma could be successfully transplanted into Western culture.

The original digitally remastered talks from which this book is drawn are also available as a two-disc audio CD set. Click here for CD set
