Compassion Thursdays at the San Antonio Meditation Center continue!

Every Thursday starting July 30, 2020, the San Antonio Meditation Center offers a weekly book study open to everyone.

Our next book will be "Crazy Wisdom" by Chogyam Trungpa









Chögyam Trungpa describes "crazy wisdom" as an innocent state of mind that has the quality of early morning—fresh, sparkling, and completely awake. This fascinating book examines the life of Padmasambhava, or Guru Rinpoche—the revered Indian teacher who brought Buddhism to Tibet—to illustrate the principle of crazy wisdom. From this profound point of view, spiritual practice does not provide comfortable answers to pain or confusion. On the contrary, painful emotions can be appreciated as a challenging opportunity for new discovery. In particular, the author discusses meditation as a practical way to uncover one's own innate wisdom.

Bring your own book or we will screen share the first few chapters to give you time to get the book for yourself.
