The Book

Pema Chodron, 83-year-old American Tibetan Buddhist nun, think youre good person. In fact, she thinks that everyone is a good person. Some just don't have awaken heart, or to use the Buddhist term, bodhichitta. In her new book Welcoming Unwelcome, Chodron moves past her usual style of writing in poetry and strict spiritual guidance and instead into vulnerable teaching about how to overcome the pain of the world by explaining how she was lead to do exactly that. While there is no shortage of direction on how to attain seemingly ever-elusive and amorphous Buddhist enlightenment, bodhi, Welcoming Unwelcome is ultimately a personal essay about Chodron's own life and struggle with her faith. The Thought of learning how to deal with personal struggles in the secular world from the first American ordain, a Buddhist nun, seems ludicrous, but throughout the book, Chodron reveals that she was once just a wandering, non-religious New Yorker. Born into a Catholic family in 1936, she grew up in church, went to the University of California at Berkeley, got married young and started a family. She lives what she calls a mundane life. Chodron thought she was happy, but then, one evening at her home in New Mexico, her husband got out of his car, walked to where she was sitting in front of the house, and told her that he was having an affair and wanted to divorce. Her Wham! Life as I know it has an end, she write. That was the first moment she could recall of feeling complete emptiness, or sunyata, even though she had not yet fallen into study of Buddhism. Chodron goes on to detail her battle against depression, and how using Buddhist practice of leaning into suffering and uncomfort to find peace, to add to her bodhichitta. Vulnerable anecdotes like this riddle book. Chodron has a way of mixing her understanding of Buddhist practice, her personal life experiences, pop culture and historical events into a narrative that is messy and relatable, yet easy to understand. She even brought up Beyonces seeming Perfection and the song Pretty hurt. Between synths and drums, lyrics like We shine light on whatever's worse / Perfection is disease of nation, show true heartache. Even though Beyonce does not write song, Chodron said Beyonce could not have sung that song with so much emotion if she had not felt that agony herself. Chodron uses this example as a way to discuss the idea of imputed meaning. In her words, Instead of experiencing things simply as they are, our mind impute extra layers of meaning onto them. You and me do exist. That is just an impute meaning the world has place on the concept of self, according to Chodron. In theme of Beyonce, pain she feels when she sings Pretty Hurts is not hers alone.
