The humanity, wisdom, humour and courage of one of the world’s greatest living spiritual leaders, captured in a selection of inspiring pieces from his books and speeches – as well as interviews and poetry.
His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama has dedicated almost his entire adult life to propagating kindness and compassion, and providing practical and spiritual advice on the eternal questions that trouble humankind.
This is the essential anthology of his most moving and insightful words. The selection represents the many facets of this great man’s teachings as well as the warmth, humility, depth, gravity, wit and literary skill that have won him such universal love and admiration. The book is arranged thematically in 25 chapters, including Compassion and the Individual, The Essence of Wisdom, The Stages of the Path, Tibet, Environmental Awareness, The Purpose of Buddhism and The Monk in His Laboratory. There is a thorough biography and an illuminating introduction, and His Holiness has contributed a foreword specially written for the book.
