Comments  Summary

Summary: In this book Tibetan Buddhist nun Pema ChÖdrÖn offers short, stand-alone readings designed to help us cultivate compassion and awareness amid the challenges of daily living. More than a collection of thoughts for the day,Comfortable with Uncertaintyoffers a progressive program of spiritual study. Inspired by the Buddhist tradition of the 108-day retreat, the book leads the reader through essential concepts, themes, and practices on the Buddhist path.Comfortable with Uncertaintydoes not assume prior knowledge of Buddhist thought or practice, making it a perfect introduction to ChÖdrÖn's teaching. It features the most essential and stirring passages from ChÖdrÖn's previous books, exploring topics such as lovingkindness, meditation, mindfulness, "nowness," letting go, and working with fear and other painful emotions. Through the course of this book, readers will learn practical methods for heightening awareness and overcoming habitual patterns that block compassion.Comfortable with Uncertainty,like a set of prayer beads, strings together 108 gems that will guide and inspire us.
