Start where you are : a guide to compassionate living by Pema Chödrön( Book )

23 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in English and held by 798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Start Where You Are is an indispensable handbook for cultivating fearlessness and awakening a compassionate heart. With insight and humor, Pema Chodron, author of The Wisdom of No Escape and When Things Fall Apart, presents down-to-earth guidance on how to make friends with ourselves and develop genuine compassion toward others. The author shows how we can "start where we are" by embracing rather than denying the painful aspects of our lives. Pema Chodron frames her teachings on compassion around fifty-nine traditional Tibetan Buddhist maxims, or slogans, such as: - Always apply a joyful state of mind; -Don't seek others' pain as the limbs of your own happiness; -Always meditate on whatever provokes resentment; - Be grateful to everyone. Working with these slogans and through the practice of meditation, Start Where You Are shows how we can all develop the courage to work with our own inner pain and discover joy, well-being, and confidence

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.

"Life has a way of provoking us with traffic jams and computer malfunctions, with emotionally distant partners and crying children--and before we know it, we're upset. We feel terrible, and then we end up saying and doing things that only make matters worse. But it doesn't have to be that way, says Pema Chödrön . It is possible to relate constructively to the inevitable shocks, losses, and frustrations of life so that we can find true happiness. The key, Pema explains, is not biting the "hook" of our habitual responses. In this recorded weekend retreat, Pema draws on Buddhist teachings from The Way of the Bodhisattva to reveal how we can: stay centered in the midst of difficulty ; improve stressful relationships ; step out of the downward spiral of self-hatred ; awaken compassion for ourselves and others"--Publisher's web site
