Abstract A guide to cultivating the mind of a bodhisattva, one who has altruistically dedicated themselves totally to others and is intent on enlightenment for their sake. Pema Chodron explores timeless insights and practices from the teachings of the classic work by the Indian master Shantideva, the Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life, and she examines the qualities of mind we need to develop on the path to enlightenment.
Like a wild elephant, the distracted mind causes emotions to escalate, but if the mind is trained to be steady and open, no matter what comes at you, you will remain calm in the immediacy of your experience. On these talks, Pema Chodron leads you through a series of practices inspired by Shantideva to help you "tether" your thoughts and emotions - not as a limiting force - but as a means to restore yourself in the freedom of the present moment.
"If we approach the wildness of our mind like a horse whisperer - using gentleness, compassion, and kindness - we return to our natural state of expansiveness that is always available to us." Pema Chodron.
