Description

Over the years, Pema Chödrön's books have offered readers an exciting new way of living: developing fearlessness, generosity, and compassion in all aspects of their lives. In this new book, she invites readers to venture further along the path of the "bodhisattva warrior," explaining in depth how we can awaken the softness of our hearts and develop true confidence amid the challenges of daily living.

In No Time to Lose Chödrön reveals the traditional Buddhist teachings that guide her own life: those of The Way of the Bodhisattva ( Bodhicharyavatara), a text written by the eighth-century sage Shantideva. This treasured Buddhist work is remarkably relevant for our times, describing the steps we can take to cultivate courage, caring, and joy—the key to healing ourselves and our troubled world. Chödrön offers us a highly practical and engaging commentary on this essential text, explaining how its profound teachings can be applied to our daily lives.

Full of illuminating stories and practical exercises, this fresh and accessible guide shows us that the path of the bodhisattva is open to each and every one of us. Pema Chödrön urges us to embark on this transformative path today, writing, "There is no time to lose—but not to worry, we can do it."

        April 29, 2013
        American Buddhist nun Chödrön provides commentary and insights as she presents the wisdom and words of eighth-century Indian Buddhist scholar Shantideva. Narrator Joanna Rotte is also a student of Buddhism, and puts her experience to good use here, capturing crucial nuances of the text and clearly presenting them to listeners. Rotte’s performance projects calm, but possess enough energy to convey the author’s calls to action, as well as a motherly tone that evokes nurturing and balance. Rotte—with touches of both whimsy and reverence—is especially adept in performing the evocative passages that explore the contrasts between human nature’s obsession with physical beauty and sensuality and the realities of aging and mortality. Granted, this challenging material may not be an obvious fit for audiences not steeped in Eastern traditions, but Rotte does her part, making for an accessible listening experience. A Shambhala paperback.
