Pema Chodron (1936 - )

Ane Pema Chodron, a Tibetan Buddhist teacher, was born Deirdre Blomfield-Brown. She studied Buddhism in the French Alps and London, where she was ordained. She worked with Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche from 1974 until 1987. She was ordained in the Chinese lineage of Buddhism in 1981 in Hong Kong. Since 1984 she served as the director of Gampo Abbey in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. She has taught lectured widely and has written several books on meditation practice in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.

Selected Pema Chodron Quotations

� The truth you believe and cling to makes you unavailable to hear anything new.

� We work on ourselves in order to help others, but also we help others in order to work on ourselves.

� When we start out on a spiritual path we often have ideals we think we're supposed to live up to.

� If we learn to open our hearts, anyone, including the people who drive us crazy, can be our teacher.

� There's a reason you can learn from everything: you have basic wisdom, basic intelligence, and basic goodness.

Mary Katherine Goddard and her widowed mother become publishers of the Providence Gazette newspaper and the annual West's Almanack, making her the first woman publisher in America. In 1775, Goddard became the first woman postmaster in the country (in Baltimore), and in 1777 she became the first printer to offer copies of the Declaration of Independence that included the signers' names. In 1789 Goddard opened a Baltimore bookstore, probably the first woman in America to do so.
