In A Heart as Wide as the World, one of America’s most popular and beloved Buddhist teachers offers encouragement and inspiration for anyone on the spiritual path. In short sections that include many stories and anecdotes drawn from her years as a student and teacher of Buddhist meditation, Sharon Salzberg reveals how our own happiness is found in the capacity to open our hearts to others—and that this capacity is far vaster than we ever thought possible. Through meditation and the practice of lovingkindness, we can discover our connection to those around us and to all life. This realization acts as a hidden storehouse of strength, allowing us to face whatever the world offers us with greater wisdom and compassion and shows us that our heart can be truly as wide as the world.
