Fear and guilt are two of the greatest challenges we face on the spiritual path-but there is a way to transform these painful feelings into courageous self-acceptance. Here Peme ChOdrOn presents the five aphorisms for developing fearlessness that were given to Machig Lapdronma, one of Tibetan Buddhism's greatest female teachers. Pema comments on these aphorisms, holds question-and-answer sessions, and leads guided meditations to help us: - overcome shame and guilt - remain courageous in the face of pain - transform our relationships with difficult people - increase our feelings of generosity and compassion

Professional reviews

"In this excellent production, taped during a retreat, Pema Chšdršn instructs listeners on five methods for cultivating fearlessness: reveal your hidden faults, approach what you find repulsive, help those you think you cannot help, let go of what you're attached to, and go to the places that scare you. Chšdršn, a Buddhist nun, has a remarkable knack for making spiritual practices simultaneously insightful and funny. Though her performance is live (complete with guided meditations and questions and answers), her explanations are astonishingly clear, direct, and provocative; indeed, their unguarded, unrehearsed quality makes them more attractive. With her trademark humor and compassion, Chšdršn offers listeners insights on how to cultivate fearlessness in the face of discomfort and a willingness to open to what she calls the "raw energy" of all life's experience.
