Beautiful submitted by keldan315 on July 7, 2017, 10:37pm Pema Chodron has an incredible talent for taking thousands of years of intricate, complex Buddhist philosophy and turning it into funny, approachable, intuitive perspectives that anyone can appreciate and grow from. This text nicely balances the secular with the theological without losing the down-to-earth humor and ease that Chodron's writing offers.
A title that hits home

Chodran’s voice and presence are so real. She’s not going to pat you on the back and say, “There, there, dear.”
But her understanding of how adversity first calls for acceptance and second, for courage to keep walking forward.
I’ve had my copy 20+ years. I’ve pulled it off the shelf even when I’m not in a terrible place but just to remember her gentle, real human being presence. I have a bookmark at a story of her walking toward a temple with two monks when vicious dogs come charging. Chodran and one monk run away; the other monk runs toward the dogs!
