    In the Shambhala tradition, meditation is simply training our state of being so that our mind and body can be synchronized. Through the practice of meditation, we can learn to be without deception, to be fully genuine and alive. Our life is an endless journey; it is like a broad highway that extends infinitely into the distance. The practice of meditation provides a vehicle to travel on that road.”

    - Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche, from "Shambhala, the Sacred Path of the Warrior"
