In a refreshing recorded seminar, the revered Buddhist nun explains the core teachings of an ancient text--Shantiveda's THE WAY OF THE BODHISATTVA. Chodron answers heartfelt questions, largely from people trying to reconcile their individual conflicts with addressing the needs of others. Rather than sounding otherworldly, her peaceful tone and relaxed grasp of Buddhist teachings are inviting and familiar. Laughing frequently and feeling at home in front of a large audience, she speaks a language that listeners everywhere will appreciate. Almost thrilling in their simplicity and generosity, the segments of Shantiveda's text that she and others read to the audience teach the disciplines of calming one's mind and making sacrifices to serve others.
