An expanded edition of "Trungpa's Dharma 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 unselfconsciousness 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".
