New edition. As human beings we possess one common desire: the need for happiness and a meaningful life. Imbued with the Dalai Lama's vivacious spirit and sense of playfulness, this book offers guidance for developing a daily practice in the quest to find true fulfilment.
"If you show other people kindness, love and respect, other people will also show you the same. This will give you more happiness. If you show other people anger and hatred, other people will also show the same, and you will lose your own happiness. Anger diminishes our thinking power - we cannot judge right and wrong. The power of judgment, of analysis, is one of the best human qualities. If that is lost, it is very sad. Still, sometimes when we face certain circumstances, it is necessary to react strongly, but this can be done without anger...When I say "brothers and sisters", I really feel that all beings are no different from my own brothers and sisters in wanting happiness and not wanting suffering." The Dalai Lama.
