Pema Chödrön on Oprah

For more than three decades, Pema Chödrön has been teaching and writing about Buddhist principles as a Tibetan Buddhist nun. One of the basic Buddhist tenets, she says, is that change is constant. “Things are going to keep changing,” she says. “And if you’re invested in security and certainty, then … you’re not going to feel good a lot of the time.” Find out why Pema says we should all approach change as if we were rivers, not rocks.
