This small book, the latest by Pema Chodron, shocks many by its title. And yet this is the title of a graduation address she gave to Naropa University earlier this year for her grand-daughter's graduation class. It is a profound teaching, perhaps the
deepest we will ever encounter in this success (whatever it means) -driven mindless culture! From the cover:
Failure opens and unguarded, vulnerable, and wide open space.
And from that space the best part
of ourselves comes out.
