Publisher's Summary

What if you could cultivate the mind of a bodhisattva -- one who has dedicated one's life to the benefit of others? According to Pema Chödrön, best-selling author and American-born Buddhist nun, you can. On Bodhisattva Mind, she examines sheshin, or "guarding alertness", and the other qualities of mind we need to develop on the path to enlightenment. "We all have a consciousness that knows what helps and what causes harm," says Ani Pema. "With this same ability, we can 'tame our minds', and extricate ourselves from suffering." A practicum of insights and meditations from this cherished teacher, Bodhisattva Mind shows us how to connect with the spacious, clear, unbiased nature of our minds and experience the joy of complete freedom.

First Understanding of Buddhism

This recording was my first introduction to Buddhism. Pema Chodron is the best first teacher anyone could ask for. Her explanations are simple yet deep and based on experiences that I could relate to. She is funny and easy to listen to. I'm now listening to this recording for the second time.
I took a Mediation 101 class last month and this is the perect next step in my practice. I highly recommend it and plan to listen to more of Pema Chodron's other works.
