The Compassion Book


by Pema Chodron

paperback | 144 pages

Let compassion and fearlessness guide you and you'll live wisely and effectively in good times and bad. But that's easier said than done. Here Pema Chödrön introduces a powerful, transformative method to nurture these qualities using a practice called lojong, which has been a primary focus of her teachings and personal practice for many years. This book presents fifty-nine pithy slogans from the lojong teachings for daily contemplation and includes Pema's clear, succinct guidance on how to understand them - and how they can enrich our lives. It also features a forty-five minute downloadable audio program entitled 'Opening the Heart'.
