On today's episode, I have the distinct privilege of speaking with Ven. Thubten Chodron. Ven. Chodron is the founder and abbess of Sravasti Abbey, a Tibetan Buddhist monastic community in Washington. She teaches the Dharma, or Buddhist teachings, around the world, and has authored over 20 books, several of them with His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Our conversation focuses on some Buddhist fundamentals, and especially compassion; how we can have more of it for ourselves and others. Ven. Chodron is humble, hilarious, and full of wisdom that I think is really relatable, and helpful in today’s polarizing climate.
