New paperback edition.The Dalai Lama invites you on an exhilarating journey of self-discovery and inner growth. In this new book he explains that self-knowledge is a vital step on the path towards enlightenment, and reveals the time-honoured techniques that will help you to shed your illusions about yourself. With his guidance and gentle encouragement, you can embrace reality at a more authentic level of being - and see yourself as you really are.

The book investigates the Buddhist concept of emptiness and covers the need for insight, how to undermine ignorance, harnessing the power of concentration and insight, how to end self-deception, how persons and things actually exist, and deepening love with insight.

"This book stems from a basic Buddhist notion that love and insight work cooperatively to bring about enlightenment, like the two wings of a bird. The overarching theme is that self-knowledge is the key to personal development and positive relationships. The Dalai Lama shows us how, in the absence of true self-knowledge, we hurt ourselves through misguided, exaggerated notions of self, others, external events, and physical things. Even our senses deceive us, drawing us into attachment and negative actions that can only come back to haunt us in the future. The book details how to overcome these mistakes in order to live from a realistic knowledge of our healthy interdependence." Jeffrey Hopkins.
