An inspiration to millions of people worldwide, the Dalai Lama has long wanted one book that he could recommend as a basic sourcebook for his essential ideas. Now, for the first time, The Essential Dalai Lama brings together the best of the Dalai LamaÂ's writings on all aspects of life from work to meditation. Divided into four sections—The Vision, Buddhist Perspectives, Practice, A World in Harmony—The Essential Dalai Lama contains eloquent applications of the principles of ancient Buddhist thought to contemporary issues, all expressed in the Dalai LamaÂ's uniquely compelling voice. Covering topics such as the quest for human happiness, foundations of Buddhism, Karma, focusing the mind, ethics and society, the Buddhist perspective on the teachings of Jesus, and much more, The Essential Dalai Lama will be the perfect gift for anyone who wishes to have one source for the Dalai LamaÂ's teachings or who seeks an introduction to the philosophy and practice of Buddhism.
