Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Reflections from the Journey of Life presents quotations from the Dalai Lama selected from personal conversations with editor Catherine Barry. The Fourteenth Dalai Lama is known throughout the world for his promotion of justice, truthfulness, and compassion for all cultures, races, and religions. Inside these pages you will read the Dalai Lama's thoughts about:

•Happiness and Love

•Negative Emotions

•Responsibility and Interdependence

•Death

•Mind, Body, and Spirit

•Ethics and Science

•Religion

•Buddhist Teachings and Practices

The Dalai Lama is a symbol of peace and of the non-violent struggle against the repression of the Tibetan people. Buddhist tradition holds that the cumulated knowledge of all the Dalai Lamas is passed on to the next one. His wisdom comes not only from the knowledge bequeathed to him through lineage, but also from his life experiences and depth of empathy for humankind. The Dalai Lama shares his unparalled insight, tolerance, and understanding with a wide-ranging scope.

Synopsis:

Collected here are numerous interviews that Catherine Barry, a prominent television personality in France, conducted with His Holiness on themes ranging from violence, death, ethics, and the environment to desire, happiness, religion, and humility. Divided into eight chapters each focusing on one topic, the book offers contemplations and advice on the ever-changing moods of the soul and the spirit, concluding with a chapter on the teachings and practice of Buddhism.</p>
