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.
