''Sakyong Mipham invites us all to dig deep into our hearts and bring forth the jewel that will illuminate our own inherent worthiness and that of society---as well as the worthiness of the beautiful earth we inhabit.''
- Pema Chödrön

We humans have come to a crossroads in our history---we can either destroy the world or create a good future. The Shambhala Principle offers the principle of basic goodness as a way of addressing the personal and social challenges that we face. Do we, as humans, have confidence in the basic goodness of humanity, as well as in society itself? As a Tibetan lama and spiritual leader, this strikes me as our most compelling global issue.

This book revolves around a dialogye with my father, the legendary Chögyam Trungpa. Whether his responses were direct or mystical, he continuously returned to the topics of basic goodness and enlightened society. Not only did he show me how I could become confident in their existence through awareness and meditation, he also taught me how basic goodness is a socially viable standard that could stabilize and transform our world.

However, this book is not a memoir, or even a message. It is an invitation to readers to reflect on their own basic goodness and the basic goodness of society, and then contemplate the question: Can we rouse our energy and confidence to create a good world that is founded on this principle? I encourage you to join me in this contemplation.
