Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Over the years, Pema Chödrön's books have offered readers an exciting new way of living: developing fearlessness, generosity, and compassion in all aspects of their lives. In No Time to Lose Pema invites readers to venture further along the path of the "bodhisattva warrior," explaining in depth how we can awaken the softness of our hearts and develop true confidence amid the challenges of daily living.

Pema reveals the traditional Buddhist teachings that guide her own life: those of The Way of the Bodhisattva (Bodhicharyavatara), a text written by the eighth-century sage Shantideva. This treasured Buddhist work is remarkably relevant for our times, describing the steps we can take to cultivate courage, caring, and joy—the keys to healing ourselves and our troubled world. Pema offers us a highly practical and engaging commentary on this essential text, explaining how its profound teachings can be applied to our daily lives.

Synopsis:

This friendly, encouraging guide is for all those who want to take up the path of the bodhisattva, one who aspires to live life with courage, generosity, and compassion--by the bestselling American Buddhist nun.

Synopsis:

Pema Chödrön is an American Buddhist nun in the lineage of Chögyam Trungpa. She is resident teacher at Gampo Abbey in Nova Scotia, the first Tibetan monastery in North America established for Westerners. She is the author of many books and audiobooks, including the best-selling When Things Fall Apart and Don't Bite the Hook.

Synopsis:

Popular Buddhist teacher Chdrns book comments at length on an eighth-century text by the Indian Buddhist sage Shantideva. Its a guidebook for developing "bodhichitta," an awakened mind that expresses itself in compassionate action to alleviate suffering.
