As accessible as it is inspirational, this selection gathers a decade's worth of public talks given in India. At the end of each talk are transcripts of question/answer sessions with His Holiness. His characteristically candid guidance on living fully and responsibly focuses on specific themes that range from religious tolerance to compassion and nonviolence. With a practical introduction to Buddhism by Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche, Director of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition. Now in paperback.
This book touches on many aspects of Buddhism, but nicest of all, it offers ways to live life with a clearer focus of cause, whether you are religious or not. I am not a Buddhist, but I got so much out of this book that I bought a second copy to give to a friend, also a non-Buddhist.
The sections on how to improve our lives in a Buddhist manner are interesting too, even if not your cup of tea. This book shows ways how without a whole lot of effort we can all "live our life in a better way."
I highly recommend this book to anyone who thinks there must be more to life but is just not sure how to get it. I have read many of the Dalai Lama's books, and this is one of the best.
