About the Author

Pema Choedroen is an American Buddhist nun in the lineage of Choegyam 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.


American Buddhist nun Chödrön, who was trained in the Tibetan tradition by the late Chögyam Trungpa, provides a book of meditative insights and instructions based on the 59 Tibetan Buddhist slogans for developing compassion, e.g., ``When we find that we are holding back, here is instruction on how to give.'' While some of the slogans depend on Buddhist teaching, many-such as ``be grateful to everyone''-are widely applicable. Chödrön's teachings are supported by personal reflections, clear explanations, and an attention to how one may achieve the goal of compassion. Useful both for Buddhist meditators and those wanting to understand Buddhist spirituality, this is recommended for large public and academic libraries.

"Gives down-to-earth instructions for walking the Buddhist talk of compassion."--Shambhala Sun

"As one of Pema Choedroen's grateful students, I have been learning the most pressing and necessary lesson of all: how to keep opening wider my own heart."--Alice Walker
