She goes on to offer practical techniques any of us can use to work for peace in our own lives, at the level of our habits of thought and action. It's never too late, she tells us, to look within and discover a new way of living and transform not only our personal lives but our whole world.

The revered Buddhist teacher and author of When Things Fall Apart presents the lojong teachings and the ways in which they can enrich our lives Welcome compassion and fearlessness as your guide, and you’ll live wisely and effectively in good times and bad. But that’s easier said than done. In The Compassion Book, Pema Chödrön introduces a powerful, transformative method to nurture these qualities using a practice called lojong, which has been a primary focus of her teachings and personal practice for many years. For centuries, Tibetan Buddhists have relied on these teachings to awaken the deep goodness that lies within us. The lojong teachings include fifty-nine pithy slogans for daily contemplation, such as “Always maintain only a joyful mind,” “Don’t be swayed by external circumstances,” “Don’t try to be the fastest,” and “Be grateful to everyone.” This book presents each of these slogans and includes Pema’s clear, succinct guidance on how to understand them—and how they can enrich our lives. It also features a forty-five-minute downloadable audio program entitled “Opening the Heart,” in which Pema offers in-depth instruction on tonglen meditation, a powerful practice that anyone can undertake to awaken compassion for oneself and others.

Awakening Loving Kindness

This abridgment of Pema Chodron's Wisdom of No Escape focuses on a meditation technique that uses the ordinary events of everyday life to teach us how to engender loving-kindness toward all beings, beginning with ourselves.

Wolf Haas' Detective Brenner series has become wildly popular around the world for a reason: They're timely, edgy stories told in a wry, quirky voice that's often hilarious, and with a protagonist it's hard not to love. In this episode, Brenner-forced out of the police force-tries to get away from detective work by taking a job as the personal chauffeur for two-year-old Helena, the daughter of a Munich construction giant and a Viennese abortion doctor. One day, while Brenner's attention is turned to picking out a chocolate bar for Helena at a gas station, Helena gets snatched from the car. Abruptly out of a job, Brenner decides to investigate her disappearance on his own. With both parents in the public eye, there's no scarcity of leads-the father's latest development project has spurred public protest, and the mother's clinic has been targeted by the zealous leader of an anti-abortion group. Brenner and God is told with a dark humor that leaves no character, including Brenner, unscathed. Haas tells the story of a fallible hero who can be indecisive and world-weary, baffled and disillusioned by what he finds, but who presses forward nonetheless out of a stubborn sense of decency-a two-year-old is kidnapped, so you find her, because that's just what you do.

This book's author, an experienced meditation teacher, describes how meditation can be used to complement standard medical procedures, improving physical health and helping to eliminate stress-related problems. She introduces readers to fundamental principles of self-healing, awareness-building, and creative imagery as techniques for reducing physi-cal pain and emotional distress. Techniques she discusses in detail include body postures, hand positions, breath control, and the Chakra system, among others. She advises on spe-cific meditation solutions to relieve back pain, headaches, fatigue, insomnia, low-grade fevers, colds and flu, respiratory disorders, and digestive problems. She also recommends meditation for emotional problems including anger management, depression, and build-ing self-esteem. Meditation is explained as being useful to enhance life's good and nor-mal aspects, such as the sex and creativity drives. Filled with practical advice and sugges-tions, The Meditation Doctor is a fine resource book for all who are interested in explor-ing the many benefits of meditation therapy.
