    What if you could cultivate the mind of a bodhisattva -- one who has dedicated one's life to the benefit of others? According to Pema Chödrön, best-selling author and American-born Buddhist nun, you can. On Bodhisattva Mind, she examines sheshin, or "guarding alertness", and the other qualities of mind we need to develop on the path to enlightenment.

    Overall

    Some doo-dah down below in the reviews said obviously the publisher posted reviews to prop up this work. I don't write reviews often because I am too busy and other people have said what I would have written already. But I do vote. This book is about seeing yourself the way you resist seeing yourself and seeing others with a new-found compassion because of it. It is about our willingness to see the speck in another's eye while ignoring our own log in the eye. And it offers hope and love as the rewards for our efforts. It is my favorite Pema work though I love everything I have heard by her - probably all her audiobooks. I do audios as my eyes are not so good anymore, must have been all those logs :-D , and I drive an hour a day to my job which is the perfect listening time for this work - get ready to see things differently before work and process before I get home. God bless Pema and her work.
