BetterListen! authors


In Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior, renowned Buddhist teacher Chögyam Trungpa offers an inspiring vision for our time, modeled on the universal archetypal symbol of the peaceful warrior.

He acquired a sense of courage and power—not through violence or aggression, but through gentleness, courage, and self-knowledge.

This audio edition is read by Chögyam Trungpa’s editor, Carolyn Rose Gimian.
