Dzigar Kongtrül teaches listeners how to incorporate the simple yet fundamental Buddhist practice of self-reflection into everyday life. The positive results on the mind are astounding as one learns how to let go of insecurities, self-doubt, and negativity. Narrator Pema Chödrön is a Buddhist nun and student of the author, and her deep understanding of the text shines through her performance. Her narration style is unembellished and somewhat bland; however, the wisdom in her voice inspires trust in the teachings. Kongtrül is masterful at making Buddhist teachings accessible within a Western framework. His metaphors, explanations, and instructions are easily understood and adopted regardless of the listener’s level of experience with Buddhist practices.
