Volume Eight covers matters of culture, state, and society. The two complete books reprinted here-- "Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior " and "Great Eastern Sun: The Wisdom of Shambhala "--explore the vision of an ancient legendary kingdom in Central Asia that is viewed as a model for enlightened society and as the ground of wakefulness and sanity that exists as a potential within every human being. The selected writings include discussions of political consciousness, the martial arts, and the true meaning of warriorship. Two previously unpublished articles are "The Martial Arts and the Art of War," on the place of warriorship in the Buddhist teachings, and "The Seven Treasures of the Universal Monarch," a little gem describing the world of the Shambhala monarch.
