About the book: 

For many years Pema Chodron's books have opened a door into a revolutionary way of living by developing fearlessness, generosity, and compassion in all aspects of our lives. In Becoming Bodhisattvas, Pema invites readers to venture further and presents the path of the "bodhisattva warrior," explaining in depth how we can awaken the softness of our hearts and develop true confidence amid the challenges we all face. And she offers readers a window into the traditional Buddhist teachings that guide her own life: those of The Way of the Bodhisattva, a text written by the eighth-century sage Shantideva. This treasured Buddhist work is remarkably relevant for our times, describing the steps we can take to cultivate courage, caring, and joy--the keys to healing ourselves and our troubled world. Here Pema offers a highly practical and engaging commentary on this essential text, explaining how its profound teachings can be applied to our daily lives.
