353 Pema Chödrön, of Gampo Abbey in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia—founded by Chogyam
Rinpoche (Shambala Tibetan) with whom she was closely associated—has traveled and
taught for
many years. Born in New York in 1936, she has been very famous around here and
throughout the West.
Her first book, Start Where You Are: A Guide to Compassionate Living, was followed by
others including When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times and The
Wisdom of No Escape. Her work has sought to simplify both an entrance to Buddhist
teaching and to soften as quickly as possible the difficulties and sufferings of fellow
human beings. She is a bodhisattva. My thanks to Teresa Iverson for this reference.

355 Kierkegaard would argue that a divine command from God transcends ethics. This
distinction means that God does not necessarily create human morality: it is up to us as
individuals to create our own morals and values. But any religious person must be
prepared for the event of a divine command from God that would take precedence over
all moral and rational obligations. Kierkegaard called this event the teleological
suspension of the ethical.
