Summary

With war and violence flaring all over the world, many of us are left feeling vulnerable and utterly helpless. In this book Pema Chödrön draws on Buddhist teachings to explore the origins of aggression, hatred, and war, explaining that they lie nowhere but within our own hearts and minds. She goes on to explain that the way in which we as individuals respond to challenges in our everyday lives can either perpetuate a culture of violence or create a new culture of compassion.

"War and peace begin in the hearts of individuals," declares Pema Chödrön at the opening of this inspiring and accessible audiobook. She goes on to offer practical techniques any of us can use to work for peace in our own lives, at the level of our habits of thought and action. It's never too late, she tells us, to look within and discover a new way of living and transform not only our personal lives but our whole world.

feeling much gratitude. very helpful

this book came along at the right time. it has been very helpful to learn about staying with any of my aggressions and aversions I'm giving them space without story line. I believe I was really ready to hear what she had to say. I have heard this teaching before, however I don't think it really sunk in. However this time I believe it did.

Pema at her core

Wise interpretation of feeling suffering in this world and the possibility of changing this. Very good
