Challenging Times
Stories of Buddhist Practice When Things Get Tough
Vishvapani

Facing illness or chronic pain, meditating at Auschwitz, coming to terms with Alzheimer’s, forgiving a sister’s murderer: these powerful stories of courage and hard-earned wisdom show the rewards of opening our hearts when things get really tough.

Ordinary people from all walks of life and experienced teachers share what happened when they followed the Buddha’s advice to turn towards their experience instead of running away from it. These intimate accounts of personal transformation show how we can find joy, forgiveness, and compassion in extreme circumstances and in the struggles of daily life.

Our eBooks can be read on Kindle, Apple software, Nook and other devices. Read about our eBook formats.

  1. Kathy Rowe

    I read this years ago and many of the pieces in this book have stayed with me for years. Stories that exemplify the human heart’s capacity for patience, love, and forgiveness.

  2. Vajranatha Vajranatha

    Thanks for this book & for offering it for free during the times of the virus. I remembered one or two of the articles from when they were originally published, but there are others that I must have missed. They are very moving, challenging and certainly stand the test of time.
