An expanded edition of Trungpa'sDharma Art(1996), this book presents Trungpa's teachings about the power of art to awaken and liberate. Trungpa extends the principles of dharma art to everyday life, showing how any activity can provide an opportunity to relax and open our senses to the phenomenal world. This edition includes a revised introduction and a new essay. "Trungpa's notion of Dharma art is not merely reproducing and interpreting a collection of Buddhist symbols or ideas, but it is an approach to art as meditation, an attitude of directness and unselfconsciouness in creative work. Leif 's inspired selection and careful editing make this an essential book for those committed to the view that the artist should be a spiritual teacher."Publishers Weekly.

Chogyam Trungpa was one of the most visibly active of the Tibetan Buddhist refugees to come to the West and to lay the foundation in Europe and North America for the study of the Tibetan traditions. Born the son of a farmer and considered the eleventh incarnation of Trungpa Tulku, he was given a traditional training in religious philosophy but in his teens had to be hidden from the invading Chinese. Fleeing in 1959 when the Communists invaded Tibet, he ultimately moved to Great Britain, where he studied comparative religion at Oxford University and established a Tibetan meditation center in Scotland. He moved to the United States in 1970 and established the Buddhist university, Naropa, in Colorado. Naropa became the center for seminars, many of which he cotaught with prominent American artists, scholars, and scientists. His philosophical goal was to present traditional Tibetan Buddhist teachings in a new manner that would help them take root in Western soil. In that way, he would both preserve the insights of his culture and bring Buddhist philosophy to the benefit of humanity at large.
