Pema Chödrön: expert on happiness

Posted on Happy Minds!

Some things are better explained by an expert. Please take some time to watch this video where Pema Chödrön explains some things about developing unconditional friendship with yourself. More by Pema Chödrön. By developing unconditional friendship with ourselves, we learn to abide with our own energy and overcome fear of that which is unfamiliar. In doing so, we also see our "sameness" with others, that we are all in the same boat. Practicing this further, we develop the unconditional ability to stand in others' shoes, not causing harm, and opening our hearts for others. Excerpted from talk 2 of Pema Chödrön's weekend retreat, A131: All in the Same Boat, May 2008. From Great Path Tapes and Books. gptapes@aol.com. These talks are also available on audio CD and MP3 CD.


  1. i have read the blogs posted by Dr. NIELS.
    yaah i am strongly agree with u. ultimately everyone needed is the happiness in life.
    story of the lady working in office who cleaned the fridge without taking any credit is quiet interesting.
