The notion of dignity is crucial to the question of how best to live a meaningful and fulfilling life, particularly for today’s environment in which so many of us experience self-doubt, low self-esteem, and feelings of being trapped by anxiety, dissatisfaction, or even success. How, in such a circumstance, can we gain authentic and unshakeable dignity? In Awakening Dignity, Phakchok Rinpoche and co-author Sophie Wu draw from the Tibetan Buddhist wisdom tradition to offer a unique and fresh approach to answer this question.

Awakening Dignity is available from all online booksellers.

We invite you to explore dignity in the following teachings from Phakchok Rinpoche as a taste of the elements explored in depth in the book.
