Don't we just love it when we get wealth, pleasure, praise, and a good reputation? Of course, let's not talk about loss, discomfort, criticism, and a bad reputation. Join Ven. Thubten Chodron for a powerful pith teaching that gets us to look squarely at the attachment and aversion to the eight worldly concerns that keep us riding the emotional rollercoaster of cyclic existence.
Venerable Thubten Chodron is an author, teacher, and the founder and abbess of Sravasti Abbey, a pioneering Tibetan Buddhist training monastery for Western nuns and monks in the US. She graduated from UCLA and did graduate work in education at USC. Ordained as a Tibetan Buddhist nun in 1977, she has studied extensively with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Tsenzhap Serkong Rinpoche, and other Tibetan lamas.

She is also involved in prison outreach and interfaith dialogue. She has published many books on Buddhist philosophy and meditation and is currently assisting His Holiness the Dalai Lama in the writing and publication of The Library of Wisdom and Compassion, a multi-volume series of teachings on the Buddhist path.
