Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism - Chogyam Trungpa
"Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism" is a book written by Chogyam Trungpa, a renowned Tibetan Buddhist teacher and meditation master.
The book is a critical examination of the common pitfalls and misconceptions of spiritual practice, and how spiritual materialism can distort the true nature of spiritual growth and realization.
Trungpa argues that spiritual materialism occurs when people use spiritual practices and beliefs as a means of gaining personal power, status, or security, rather than for the purpose of true spiritual growth and liberation. He provides a clear and insightful guide to avoiding these pitfalls, and to recognizing the true nature of spiritual practice and awakening.
The book is considered a seminal work on the topic, and remains relevant and inspiring for spiritual seekers of all traditions and backgrounds.
