A good friend of mine is doing a presentation on Pema Chodron's usage of the word shenpa and Buddhism. He wanted to include a part comparing that in other traditions, specifically in Zen Buddhism. My friend wanted to see if there were articles, writers, or teachers that address with a similar concept. Since I don't thread into the Tibetan Buddhism path, I was stumped. I didn't even know what the word meant or how she was expounding on it. I googled and got the following articles:

I am less stumped, but I still trying to think of an article or a teacher that would address that concept.
Can someone un-stump a bit more? :P :mrgreen:
