InMeditation in Action, ChÃ–gyam Trungpa teaches that meditation is based on trying to see what is, rather than trying to achieve a higher mental or physical state. Trungpa describes the life of the Buddha, and emphasizes that, like the Buddha, we must find the truth for ourselves, rather than following someone else's example. Meditation in action might also be called "working meditation," for it is not a retreat from the world. Rather, it builds the foundation for tremendous compassion, awareness, and creativity in all aspects of a person's mind or behavior. There are six activities associated with meditation in action: generosity, discipline, patience, energy, clarity, and wisdom. Trungpa transcends the conventional understanding of these terms, showing how through simple, direct experience, one can attain real wisdom-the ability to see clearly into situations and to deal with them skillfully, without the self-consciousness connected with ego. This fortieth anniversary edition features a new afterword by Samuel Bercholz, founder of Shambhala Publications.
