AbstractThis book is a wonderful tool for self growth and discovery. Ms Chodorn is eloquent and articulate in her delivery of helpful insights into the human condition,gentle and simple in her understanding of what may restore balance. The book can be read piecemeal or from beginning to end. The glossary offers edification on Buddhist Sanskrit meanings, which was helpful to the beginner to Buddhism and not a student of Sanskrit. This book offers a path of healing and wholeness. To see it without this meaning is to miss the point.A daily primer for becoming a "warrior of compassion" in the world.

More than just a collection of "thoughts for the day," Comfortable with Uncertainty offers a progressive program of spiritual study with Tibetan Buddhist nun and bestselling author Pema Chodron. Inspired by the Buddhist tradition of the 108-day retreat, Pema Chodron offers essential concepts and practices to help listeners become a "warrior-bodhisattva, " who courageously takes up the path of awakening compassion both for oneself and others.

Comfortable with Uncertainty does not assume prior knowledge of Buddhist thought or practice, making it a perfect introduction to Chodron’s teaching. Passages explore topics such as loving-kindness, meditation, mindfulness, nowness, letting go, and working with fear and other painful emotions. Listeners learn practical methods for heightening awareness and overcoming habitual patterns that block compassion, while developing a working knowledge of tonglen, an on-the-spot meditation practice for easing emotional suffering – both our own and others.

Comfortable with Uncertainty, like a set of traditional Buddhist prayer beads, strings together 108 gems sure to be cherished for their guidance and inspiration. Read by Sounds True publisher Tami Simon.
