Loving Life as It Is by Chakung Jigme Wangdrak

Practical Buddhist wisdom and mindful methods for finding the silver lining in all circumstances—from a remarkable new voice in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.

Chakung Jigme Wangdrak gives concrete advice on how to reorient your thinking when faced with the challenges, mess, and chaos that inevitably occur in life. By embracing pain and suffering, you can learn to see their roots, begin to work with them, and eventually let them go. This will create joy and ease, allowing you to fully savor happiness.

In clear language, Jigme Wangdrak conveys the steps, stages, and categories of mental exercises and methods that everyone—from beginner to experienced practitioner and non-Buddhists—can use to train their mind toward happiness:

  • Take happiness and suffering as the path
  • Cultivate courage, gratitude, and compassion
  • Practice contentment (not complacency)
  • Recognize outer and inner obstacles when faced with challenging situations
  • Dispel self-grasping to reduce suffering
  • Develop patience and tolerance
