words for things we don’t know in our minds, but any of us could experience them. They are words that point to what life really is when we let things fall apart and let our- selves be nailed to the present moment.” Meditation in Action by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche (1969) First book published by Shambhala. Put young Tibetan teacher Chögyam Trung- pa on the map and laid down fundamen- tal principles of his teachings. QUOTE: “The whole idea of meditation is to develop an entirely different way of dealing with things, where you have no purpose at all. ... One is not on the way to somewhere. Or rather, one is on the way and one is also at the des- tination at the same time. That is really what meditation is for.” became popular in fields such as business, leadership, diplomacy, and sports.

QUOTE: “You’re connected to friends and to teachers at school, and even to people you don’t think are cool.

And they are connected to you.” ♦ The Art of Peace Morihei Ueshiba (1992) This book of teachings by the founder of Aikido, translated by John Stevens, reached a wide audience when it was fea- tured on the hit show The Walking Dead. QUOTE: “There are many paths leading to the peak of Mount Fuji, but the goal is the same. ... There is no need to battle with each other—we are all brothers and sisters who should walk the Path together, hand in hand. Keep to your Path, and nothing else will matter. When you lose your desire for things that do not matter, you will be free.” When Things Fall Apart Pema Chödrön (1997) An enduring bestseller, this was the break- through book by the beloved American Buddhist nun. It has helped hundreds of thousands find a new way to face life’s challenges and find awakening within. QUOTE: “Emptiness is not what we thought. Neither is mindfulness or fear. Compassion—not what we thought. Love. Buddhanature. Courage. These are code Writing Down the Bones Natalie Goldberg (1986) One of Shambhala’s first bestsellers, this how-to book became a classic in the crea- tivity field and was one of the first books to bring a Buddhist approach into the mainstream. QUOTE: “First thoughts have tremen- dous energy. It is the way the mind first flashes on something. The internal cen- sor usually squelches them, so we live in the realm of second and third thoughts, thoughts on thought, twice and three times removed from the direct connec- tion of the first fresh flash.” The Art of War Sun Tzu (1988) This translation by Thomas Cleary be- came the standard English edition for an ancient Chinese military treatise that LION’S ROAR | SEPTEMBER 2019 61
