A Heart as Wide as the World

A Heart as Wide as the World

Sharon Salzberg


The Buddhist teachings have the facility to remodel our lives for the higher, says Sharon Salzberg, and all we have to result in this change are available within the traditional occasions of our daily stories. Salzberg distills greater than twenty-five years of educating and practising meditation right into a sequence of brief essays, wealthy with anecdotes and private revelations, that provide real relief and luxury for an individual at the non secular direction. Many likelihood moments, either small and profound, function the foundation for Salzberg's teachings: listening to a industry stall hawker calling "I have what you need!"; noting lodge site visitors' reactions to a dead night hearth alarm; observing her instructor, Dipa Ma, bless a belligerent puppy; seeing the Dalai Lama giggling uproariously at his personal mistake. every one passing second, Salzberg indicates, may also help us down the trail towards "a seamlessness of connection and an unbounded heart."
