Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Imbued with a friendly tone and pithy wisdom, this handsome handbook to approaching life "in a better way" includes six of His Holiness The Dalai Lama's most accessible and inspirational public lectures. Following each talk are the original question-and-answer sessions in which His Holiness opens himself up to his listeners and-now-to readers everywhere. His characteristically candid guidance on living fully and responsibly, especially at the start of a new millennium, focuses on specific themes that range from religious tolerance to compassion and nonviolence. The book also includes a practical and highly readable introduction to Buddhism and The Dalai Lama's own spiritual heritage, written by the renowned Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche.

Review:

"The book's ultimate message of happiness through compassion is a vital one, but this collection is geared for the adept with a philosophical appetite and a considerable intellect, not for the general reader." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[A] succinct presentation of the very complex tenets of Buddhism...[it] gives insight into transforming [the] mind [and] journeying to happiness." Napra Review

Review:

"For anyone who wants an introduction to the principles of Buddhism or an opportunity to share the insights and reflections of the Dalai Lama, this book has both." AudioFile

Review:

"[The Dalai Lama] reminds seekers not to allow negative emotions to guide their actions and that mental actions are the only way to reach liberation of the spirit." Library Journal

Review:

"He's the most simple man and the most complex man I've ever met. He's an artist and he's a farmer. He ? like any great mind and heart ? is able to engage each of us on a level where we exist." Richard Gere

Eric Watson, March 20, 2015 (view all comments by Eric Watson)
This book is a wonderfully concise book of practical advice from the Dalai Lama. It provides a quick introduction to Buddhism and then surveys different mental exercises you can practice to improve your own outlook on life. One of my favorite aspects of this book is that the Dalai Lama provides advice knowing that not everyone is Buddhist. In fact, he tries to bridge the gaps between the different major religions and find their common grounds. His advice is largely simple in theme (although not always easy to incorporate into your life) and is largely compatible with the worldviews of all religions, centering on cultivating more happiness and compassion in your life.
