When Things Fall Apart - Heart Advice for Difficult Times

by Pema Chodron


There is a fundamental opportunity for happiness right within our reach, yet we usually miss it – ironically while we are caught up in attempts to escape pain and suffering. Drawn from traditional Buddhist wisdom, Pema’s radical and compassionate advice for what to do when things fall apart in our lives goes against the grain of our usual habits and expectations. There is only one approach to suffering that is of lasting benefit, Pema teaches, and that approach involves moving toward painful situations with friendliness and curiosity, relaxing into the essential groundlessness of our entire situation. It is there, in the midst of chaos, that we can discover the truth and love that are indestructible.

Reviews of When Things Fall Apart

The Tibetan Buddhist equivalent of Harold Kushner’s When Bad Things Happen to Good People. . . Chodron demonstrates how effective the Buddhist point of view can be in bringing order into disordered lives.” – Publishers Weekly

“This is a book that could serve you for a lifetime.” – Natural Health Magazine “As one of Pema Chodron’s grateful students, I have been learning the most pressing and necessary lesson of all: how to keep opening wider my own heart.” – Alice Walker

Filled with crystalline wisdom from the great poets, sages saints and mystics, this selection of poems ias a collective expression of universal heart-filled wisdom. The poems span a wide range of cultures and civilizations- from India to Europe, Japan, and the Middle East-  and each one offers a unique perspective about about the path to awakening.

Some of the poems express belief in a higher being. Some convey instantaneous awakening. Others lead the reader down a disiplined path of contemplation.

Ordered according to a broad interpretation of the heart-centered chakra model, these remarkable poems guide the reader toward realization and offer timeless jewels of insight to spark awakening and enrich spiritual practice.
