SOUNDS TRUE bodhisattva seeks liberation from suffering not only for oneself, but for all beings. If you were a bodhisattva, how would you respond in the face of chaos and difficulty? Could you find calm in the middle of a storm? On Bodhisattva Mind, Pema Chödrön explores timeless insights and practices from the teachings of Shantideva’s eighth-century buddhist classic The Way of the Bodhisattva to reveal a powerful core truth that can move us all closer to the bodhisattva ideal. An Unlikely Voice on Living a Virtuous Life In the eyes of his fellow scholars, begins Pema Chödrön, Shantideva appeared lazy and uninterested in his studies. He was greatly resented. So they invited the young “slacker” to give a prestigious talk—an honor reserved for only the most realized buddhist masters—hoping to humiliate him and force him to leave school. Instead, he delivered the timeless jewel known today as The Way of the Bodhisattva. Paradoxically, the key to true liberation, he taught, is in taming the mind. Like a wild elephant, the distracted mind causes emotions to escalate. but if the mind is trained to be steady and open, no matter what comes at you, you will remain solid in the immediacy of your experience. Bodhisattva Mind presents an all-new series of practices inspired by Shantideva to help you “tether” your thoughts and emotions—not as a limiting act— but as a means to relax and restore yourself in the uncertainty of the present moment. Experience the Spaciousness of Complete Freedom “If we approach the wildness of our minds like a ‘horse whisperer’—with gentleness, compassion, and kindness—we return to our natural state of expansiveness that is always available,” says Pema Chödrön. Bodhisattva Mind invites you to join this gifted teacher to experience the clear, unbiased nature of complete freedom. pema chÖdrÖn ... is an American buddhist nun whose many books include No Time to Lose and When Things Fall Apart.
