No Time to Lose by Pema Chödrön
Pema Chädrön is a wise woman and this book is an important book for everybody not only Buddhists, in a world developing faster than ever with more choices than ever. Still, we have developed a world of fear with financial crises and terrorism. This beautiful book is pinpointing the need to develop true compassion for others. Only by walking in the city you will on your way see homeless, drug addict or mentally unstable people, stop breathing in their pain and blow out your happy wishes for them. This is a good start to developing a way to a more human-friendly and warm society. Pema Chädrön writes beautifully and with an understandable wisdom on the subject. The book is based upon a classical text written by the eight-century sage Shanti deva. The text is remarkably relevant and gives you the teaching on how to develop and cultivate compassion, joy, caring and courage. Teaching that can be applied to our daily lives.
