Double Mirror : A Skeptical Journey into Buddhist Tantra – Paperback


SKU: 9781556431760 Categories: , Tag:


In The Double Mirror, the author’s personal history – as a student of the late Tibetan master Chogyam Trungpa, known for his unconventional lifestyle and “crazy wisdom” teaching style – is the framework for an incisive and eloquent examination of a profound spiritual journey. Writing both from a critical perspective and from his direct experience of Vajrayana practice, the author looks at Buddhist tantric teachings and practices and their expression in Vajradhatu, Trungpa’s organization. While discussing how the institution may sometimes function like a “cult,” Butterfield nonetheless experiences Buddhist tantra as an authentic system of profound spiritual transformation.
The Double Mirror explores the effects of Buddhist practice on personality, autonomy, perception, and health, and discusses what Buddhism has to offer Americans.
