Publisher Comments:

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 book. 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.

Synopsis:

"War and peace begin in the hearts of individuals," declares Pema Chodron in her inspiring and accessible new book, which draws on Buddhist teachings to explore the origins of aggression and war.

I love reading Pema and I know that I'm not alone! This particular gem has been instrumental in assisting me to accept my (and other's) Basic Goodness as permanent and to move through neurosis as temporary. Each chapter is the perfect length to start the day, focus a meditation or simply to read on the fly to give a lozenge for the emotions we surround ourselves with.

Her writing is nearly the best of the current Buddhist writers in offering wisdom that is 1000's of years old with contemporary humor and insight. She speaks to the heart and mind and encourages us to live gently for ourselves and those around us, before it's too late.
