A Heart as Wide as the World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of America's most popular Buddhist teachers distills more than 25 years of teaching and practicing meditation into a series of short essays, rich with anecdotes and personal revelations, that offer genuine aid and comfort for anyone on the spiritual path.

Synopsis:

In A Heart as Wide as the World, one of America's most popular Buddhist teachers offers a book of encouragement and inspiration for anyone on the spiritual path. In short sections that include many stories and anecdotes culled from her twenty-five years as a student and teacher of Buddhist meditation, Sharon Salzberg reveals how our own happiness is found in the capacity to open our hearts to others. And that this capacity is far more vast than we ever thought possible. Through meditation and the practice of lovingkindness, we can discover our intimate connection to those around us and to the world as a whole. This realization acts like a hidden storehouse of strength, allowing us to face whatever the world offers us with wisdom and compassion. In these pages, Sharon Salzberg shows us that our heart can be truly as wide as the world.
