Publisher Comments:

As human beings, we all share the desire for happiness and meaning in our lives. According to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the ability to find true fulfillment lies within each of us. In this very special book, the spiritual and temporal leader of Tibet, Nobel Prize winner, and bestselling author helps readers embark upon the path to enlightenment with a stunning illumination of the timeless wisdom and an easy-access reference for daily practice.

Divided into a series of distinct steps that will lead spiritual seekers toward enlightenment, How to Practice is a constant companion in the quest to practice morality, meditation, and wisdom. This accessible book will guide you toward opening your heart, refraining from doing harm, and maintiaining mentaltranquility as the Dalai Lama shows you how to overcome everyday obstacles, from feelings of anger and mistrust to jealousy, insecurity, and counterproductive thinking. Imbued with His Holiness' vivacious spirit and sense of playfulness, How to Practice offers sage and practical insight into the human psyche and into the deepest aspirations that bind us all together.

Synopsis:

His Holiness the Dalai Lama--Nobel Peace Prize winner and "New York Times" bestselling author--guides readers on a revitalizing journey toward wholeness in this wonderfully lyrical and practical volume.

About the Author

His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, was born in 1935 to a peasant family in northeastern Tibet and was recognized at the age of two as the reincarnation of his predecessor, the Thirteenth Dalai Lama. The world's foremost Buddhist leader, he travels extensively, speaking eloquently in favor of ecumenical understanding, kindness and compassion, respect for the environment, and, above all, world peace. Jeffrey Hopkins, Ph.D., served for a decade as the interpreter for the Dalai Lama. A Buddhist scholar and the author of more than thirty-five books and translations, he is emeritus professor of Tibetan and Buddhist studies at the University of Virginia, where he founded the largest academic program of Tibetan Buddhist studies in the West.Jeffrey Hopkins, Ph.D., served for a decade as the interpreter for the Dalai Lama.

There are many levels of guidance and understanding in His Holiness The Dalai Lama's "How to Practice the Way to a Meaningful Life", making it more than practical. Since it is brought to us by HHTDL, this volume is also at turns as playful as the Dalai Lama himself, and, by his instruction, we couldn't possibly take it all too seriously and upset the balance of the nature of human spiritual practice. Even if you're not going to commit to a path toward enlightenment, this book offers, in steps of clarity, meaningful action that would improve anyone's existence.
