Lions Roar : May 2009
Discover loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity with Pema Chödrön Here is a rare opportunity to study and practice with Pema Chödrön in depth—without having to travel to her monastery in Nova Scotia. It’s an eight- hour audio course in cultivating the qualities known as the “Four Limitless Ones,” and it’s designed especially to be worked with in the midst of the activities of your ever yday busy life. Spiritual practice, i n Pema’s v iew, h as nothing to do with self-improvement, since, as t he t itle claims, you’r e already perfect right now. The limitless qualities of loving- kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity are your deep-down, ultimate reality, and those are qualities that can’t b e improved upon. If you’re not f eeling particularly kind, compassionate, joyful, or equanimous at the moment, take heart: the Four Limitless Ones a re t here like seeds, waiting to be cultivated through practice—and, being limitless, t hey’re r ich enough to be worked with for a lifetime. This intensive program of study and practice provides the tools you need to access these radiant states and to nurture their growth for the sake of all beings, including yourself. Do the program at your own pace. It fits perfectly with any other kind of medita- tion you’r e doing. And since no previous knowledge of Buddhism is required, it’s also ideal for those new to spiritual practice.
