Description du produit

Revue de presse

"The Wisdom of No Escape offers down-to-earth guidance in cultivating basic sanity and befriending ourselves in the venerable tradition of Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche."—Yoga Journal

"Pema's deep experience and her fresh way of looking at things are like mountain water—clear and refreshing, as good dharma should be."—Jack Kornfield

"Here's a woman who embodies her message. She speaks from genuine connection to the source."—Helen Palmer, author of The Enneagram

Présentation de l'éditeur

It’s true, as they say, that we can only love others when we first love ourselves and we can only experience real joy when we stop running from pain. The key to understanding these truisms lies in remaining open to life in all circumstances, and here Pema Chödrön shows us how. Because when we embrace the happiness and suffering, intelligence and confusion that are a natural part of life, we can begin to discover a wellspring of courageous love within our hearts.

The book cover is definitely silly and will maybe put you off... But it's an exact reflection of the humor that permeates Pema Chodron's treatment of the very metaphysical subject of why we're here and whe we're going.

Pema Chodron manages to bring the wisdom the Himalayas to the crowded, fast-paced, sometimes alienating cities we live in.

She'll tell it like it is: there's nowhere to run if you've made a major mistake or if you're feeling really down). The good news is that wherever you are if a place to start from and that you have the right resources within. And she'll break these news which such humor and faith in the little light we all have inside!

I love Pema's work, but am starting to feel like she's writing the same book again and again with different titles.

This is one of my favorite books by Pema Chodron. It not only does a very good job of describing the essence of Buddhism, but it goes beyond that in making Tibetan Buddhism more understandable and relevant to a Western audience without deveating from the tradition. In short, it contains the heart of the teachings of the Vajrayana. A nice complimentary book if you are interested in going deeper into Tibetan Buddhism is Fundamentals of Tibetan Buddhism. These books compliment each other and the latter puts all of the Buddhist traditions in historical context. Huston Smith's essay in The World's Religions: Our Great Wisdom Traditions or Buddhism: A Concise Introduction. You get more bang for your buck with the former Huston Smith book, however.

The fundamental teaching of the Buddha involves the following realizations: 1) Life is suffering; 2) The cause of suffering is selfish desire; 3) To get rid of selfish desire, follow the eightfold path. The essence of the eightfold path is a moral life grounded in a strong loving-kindness practice (A Mahayana emphasis, but true of all schools). This book provides precisely that -- a path of loving-kindness that any person could follow and apply to their life. When asked what religion the Dalai was, he once said... "my religion is loving-kindess." While the Dalai Lama didn't officially endorse the book that I know of, certainly it is written in keeping with this spirit.

This book covers a LOT of ground in short volume of about 108 pages. It looks at the existential situation of not being able to escape our life and the human condition which is characterized by suffering. The Buddha said as his last words, "be a lamp unto yourselves." I believe the intent here was that no super mommy or daddy in the sky is going to come down and save you from the human condition. You must look deeply to see the truth and this will liberate you from samsara or the cycle of suffering. In this book, Pema Chodron describes the Buddha's teachings and more importantly practices to help you to arrive at a place of loving-kindness and equanimity.

What I most like about this book is that she keeps things simple. She also describes Tonglen practice and other forms of meditation and habits of thought that cultivate a mind that is not locked in conditioned thinking. Krishnamurti once said, "seeing the truth deeply is what liberates, not your efforts to be free." A corallary to this might be... yes... but what limits how deeply you can see is your depth of compassion for others, but primarily for yourself. This book is a manual about how to cultivate a loving-kindness that allows you to penetrate the insufficiency of living for things like money, sex, power and status. It is a good read for anyone.

If you are interested in a somewhat different Western perspective or something to contrast these writings with then try A Path with Heart: A Guide Through the Perils and Promises of Spiritual Life. This book by Jack Kornfield emphasizes an earlier Buddhist tradition namely the Theravada (Way of the Elders). Mahayana Buddhism was an outgrowth of these teachings and Tibetan Buddism (Vajrayana) a further extension and elaboration. Jack Kornfield is a Western psychologist who spent a number of years in Thailand as a Buddhist monk and his perspective is accessible, entertaining, practical and complimentary to this book. If you are looking for a more integrative read that relates to Western Psychology directly try Toward a Psychology of Awakening: Buddhism, Psychotherapy, and the Path of Personal and Spiritual Transformation. This is a more difficult read, but extremely worthwhile. There are other recommendations on my listmania lists of this is your area of interest.

The book is a collection of talks the author gave during a month long retreat. I found that made most chapters perfect for a morning read before work to get my mind started on the right track.

Very insightful read. I was getting migraines and as soon as I started reading this book, they went away. When I stopped reading, they came back. I realized that I was practicing what she had written as I was reading. The whole practice put my mind at ease, and that is probably why I didn't notice the migraine. This book is great for everyone, especially those with anger issues. Seriously, it can and will help if you are able to keep and opened mind and read it for what it is. Very easy reading.

Par Laurie P. - Publié sur

If I could only have one book to read for the rest of my life, this would be it. Pema Chodron has a way of articulating Buddhist teachings that makes them immediately accessible and relevant to the listener's own life, and regardless of one's religious or spiritual affiliation. This is Good Medicine; the kind that leaves you in touch with your innate curiosity, and open to Life in a refreshed way. Mind-expanding in the best possible sense. I've read a few other of her books (Start Where you Are, When Things Fall Apart), which are also excellent. But this was my first introduction to her writings 20+ years ago, and still remains a favorite.
