The Tibetan Buddhist lessons for the fulfilled life known as The Four Limitless Ones are meant to guide us like an arrow along the soaring arc of unconditional love. As a newly ordained nun decades ago, Pema Chödrön endeared a generation of Westerners with her teachings on this step-by-step, fourfold path of the heart. Now, with Awakening Love, her original students and new ones alike are in for a treat. This five-day meditation series, recently recorded at Gampo Abbey, brings listeners into the presence of Pema Chödrön as she revisits the Four Immeasurables or Limitless Ones: Lovingkindness, Compassion, Joy, and Equanimity. Each are explored here in depth, and informed by Ani Pema s own lifetime of challenges and insights as a mother, grandmother, teacher, and guide. Perhaps more than any other author, Pema Chödrön has inspired popular audiences with the teachings of Tibetan spirituality by making its wisdom lucid, relevant, and useful in the real world. Awakening Love brings listeners her unique blend of kitchen-table common sense, scholarship, and empathy to help us start where we are, trust in the resilience of the undefended heart , and enter the eternal stream of universal love.
