The Path to Tranquility Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s classic bestseller, The Path to Tranquility, is being reissued on audio to coincide with the hardcover and audio publication of his latest work, How to be Compassionate.

This collection of daily quotations drawn from His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s own writings, teachings, and interviews offers words of guidance, compassion, and peace that are as down to earth as they are rich in spirit. Suffused with endearing informality, warmth, and practicality, they cover almost every aspect of human life, secular and religious—from loneliness, suffering, anger, and everyday insecurities to happiness, intimacy, and responsibility to others. The Path to Tranquility is a fresh and accessible spiritual treasure to return to day after day, year after year.


Through practical exercises and personal anecdotes, the Dalai Lama shows how becoming compassionate as individuals can lead to global changes.

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. Robert Thurman is the author of the critically acclaimed, popular original books Inner Revolution and Infinite Life and a translator of sacred Tibetan texts, including The Essence of True Eloquence and The Tibetan Book of the Dead. He teaches at Columbia University and holds the first endowed chair in Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies in America. Cofounder of Tibet House US and Menla Mountain Retreat Center, he lives in New York City and Woodstock, New York.
