    As always Pema Chodron makes ancient texts relevant and accessible. This book is so good as all of her works are. Her writings have changed my life and world views more than once. Highly recommend!

    Highly Recommended - you must read!

    Pema Chodren's writing about the path of the Bodhisattva from Shantideva's work supports my need of better understanding of the practice of meditation. She does leave out a Chapter on Wisdom, yet states that would be a book of it's own. I love Peam's writing as she simplifies what can appear to be complicated, yet in her wording, I see the path. Great book for beginner's to meditation.

    "no time to lose" says it all

    Chodron acknowledges her own shortcomings and yet she delivers an excellent overview of this ancient text. An occidental spin on an translation of a deep oriental text; not an easy thing to do.

    A wonderful read

    This book takes "The Way of The Bodhisattva" and makes it applicable to our lives today. It helped me to realize that I really needed to be serious about my practice and also why it was important to practice. The teaching explanations by Pema Chodron are given with a sense of humor but yet serious at the same. This book will take your breath away with its beauty. I checked it out of the library but had to own a copy for myself because it was so good!
