IBNA- ‘Welcoming the Unwelcome: Wholehearted Living in a Brokenhearted World’ by American spiritual teacher and author Pema Chodron which calls for human connection and compassion has been published in Persian.
The book which teaches to love the world just as it is during these most challenging times has been translated into Persian by Shadi Foroutanian and has been released by Torang Publishing in 248 pages.
In her first new book of spiritual teachings in over seven years, Pema Chödrön offers a combination of wisdom, heartfelt reflections, and the signature mix of humor and insight that have made her a beloved figure to turn to during times of change.
In an increasingly polarized world, Chödrön shows us how to strengthen our abilities to find common ground, even when we disagree, and influence our environment in positive ways. Sharing never-before told personal stories from her remarkable life, simple and powerful everyday practices, and directly relatable advice, Pema encourages us all to become triumphant bodhisattvas-compassionate beings-in times of hardship.
‘Welcoming the Unwelcome’ includes teachings on the true meaning of karma, recognizing the basic goodness in ourselves and the people we share our lives with-even the most challenging ones, transforming adversity into opportunities for growth, and freeing ourselves from the empty and illusory labels that separate us.
She also provides step-by-step guides to a basic sitting meditation and a compassion meditation that anyone can use to bring light to the darkness we face, wherever and whatever it may be.
