Publisher's Summary

Discover the Buddha's six keys to greater ease, compassion, and fulfillment.

We may tell ourselves that once our lives get on track - with a good career, a loving partner, and a better sense of security - then we'll be able to focus on our greater purpose here. Deep down, many of us have felt this way. But is this really true?

"What if it's not the life you wish you had," asks Pema Chödrön, "but the one you've got that holds what you need to reach your highest potential?"

With Journey to Fulfillment, this beloved teacher shows us how wisdom, purpose, and true freedom begin right here and how the Six Paramitas of Buddhism can help us to find them.

The Sanskrit word paramitas means "actions that take us to the other shore". Like travelers, Pema illustrates, we stand on the bank of a river, with all of our worries, confusion, and unfulfilled wants. Yet across the water we see those who have found ease, clarity of mind, and a deep tenderness for others. To help us make that crossing, the Buddha offered the paramitas.

In this audio program, listeners will learn to understand and apply these six transcendent aids: generosity, discipline, patience, joyful enthusiasm, meditation, and wisdom. Here, Pema shows those of all faiths how to use the paramitas to move out of isolation and into loving connection, from constriction to ease, and from fear to the compassionate courage of our awakened nature.

Top 5

I’ve listened to just about all of what Pema has on Audible and this is in the top five. A deep dive into the paramitas is fulfilling and something I’ll listen to once a month.

I thought this was a book

I thought it was a book but it was her giving a talk, not a deep dive like I had hoped. Content was fine.
