This episode of the Wisdom Podcast, recorded live as a Wisdom Dharma Chat, features a conversation with Ven. Sangye Khadro, a Tibetan Buddhist nun and author of the bestselling book How to Meditate: A Practical Guide. Ven. Khadro (Kathleen McDonald) tells us how she discovered Buddhism and how she wrote How to Meditate, including how she teaches meditation to Westerners who typically come to Buddhism in adulthood. She also describes different varieties of meditation and offers suggestions for those with little experience trying to begin their own practice. Ven. Khadro speaks on her favorite aspects of monastic life, and how it allows for an enhanced practice of ethics within a supportive community.
