How can we practice compassion in our daily lives, especially in this time of pandemic and social upheaval?
Join Buddhist nun, author, and teacher Thubten Chodron as she shares about and reads from "Courageous Compassion," the sixth and latest book in a multi-volume series she is co-authoring with His Holiness the Dalai Lama on the Buddhist path to awakening.
