A newly designed reissue of Pema Chödrön’s Always Maintain a Joyful Mind—featuring everyday inspiration drawn from the classic Buddhist practice of lojong and instructive commentaries by Pema for making the lojong teachings a practical part of everyday life.

This uniquely accessible presentation of lojong, one of Tibetan Buddhism’s most renowned practices, gets at the heart of compassion as only Pema Chödrön can. Featuring the 59 pithy lojong slogans and Pema’s commentary for everyday practice on each facing page, The Compassion Book will serve as a go-to handbook for anyone seeking to instill more love and joy in their lives. In addition, the book will offer readers access to a 45-minute audio download on the related meditation practice of tonglen (“sending and taking”) taught by Pema.
