    Tibetan Buddhism describes three gates that everyone must pass through on the road to spiritual liberation. With the Three Commitments, Pema Chodron brings her unique blend of insight and gentle instruction to guide practitioners through each of these thresholds as they seek the source of true happiness. As Pema explains, suffering arises when we resist the laws of impermenance-the fact that everything we know, including ourselves, will one day die.

    What did you love best about The Three Commitments?

    Very indepth teaching from Pema


    Would you be willing to try another book from Pema Chodron? Why or why not?

    Of course. I have others. Not the first nor the last


    What does Pema Chodron bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Humor. Authenticity at a very human level


    Any additional comments?

    What is missing are all three commitments. I presume because the listener is not taking monastic vows. Seems appropriate in hindsight, but the title is very misleading when we don't hear everything. Even a chapter heading refers to the commitment and then Pema goes on to talk about something else.
