The courage of the Buddha
Author: Pema Chodron
Pema Chödrön, Buddhist nun and internationally renowned author, teaches us that in difficult times we always have a choice: to let the circumstances of life harden and feed the grudge and fear within us or to use them to become more loving, kinder people . The courage of the Buddha offers us the tools to face the difficulties that life presents us and makes us understand that we can draw on our inner wisdom at all times, even if we often bar the way on our own with behaviors dictated by fear. Pema Chödrön teaches us to awaken our innate goodness and to accept ourselves and others in every aspect, pleasant and less pleasant, to live the present moment with fullness and serenity and immediately recognize all the "tricks" of the ego, which pushes us to oppose the natural flow of life.
