About this book
This recent best-seller from American Buddhist nun Pema Chodron focuses on the cultivation of bodhichitta (bo-dee-CHEE-ta), the awakened heart and mind that responds compassionately and wisely to suffering, both our own and others'. The wisdom of bodhichitta is always available to us, but we usually block it with habitual patterns rooted in fear. Fearlessness is what we need, Pema teaches, to take us beyond the obstacles of self-deception into the tenderness of this open-hearted state. This book presents tools for the journey. It includes teachings on:
  • Accepting ourselves and others
  • Staying in the present moment
  • Tapping into natural reservoirs of humor, flexibility, courage, and wisdom
  • Moving toward what makes us feel insecure, uncertain, and fearful as a way to awaken basic goodness and connect with others
  • Cultivating loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity
