Article
In this article Chogyam Trungpa gives an overall description of the practice of meditation in Buddhism. Before discussing this, however, he begins with a general overview of Buddhist history, he begins of course with the life of the Buddha in India, and then traces Buddhism through the major points where it changed and spread. The three turnings of the wheel are discussed, so as to give the reader an idea of the context that Buddhist practice emerged from. Then Trungpa begins to explain the actual meditation practices in Buddhism. To explain meditation Trungpa outlines the four Principles of Buddhism, Impermanence, Suffering, Emptiness and Selflessness. And in the last part of the article the reader has a more concrete description of the practices of meditation from an emotional and practical side.
