Synopsis: Sale edition. Collected here for the first time are four of the Dalai Lama`s most accessible and inspiring teachings on compassion. The purpose of life is to be happy, His Holiness reminds us. To be happy, we should devote ourselves to developing our own peace of mind; the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater our own peace of mind. Therefore, we must develop compassion for others in order to be truly happy.
In these four teachings - imbued with the gentle humour and extraordinary kindness of this incomparable teacher - His Holiness explores altruism and the need for compassion on an individual as well as a global scale. He offers specific practices for developing loving-kindness and compassion in even the most difficult situations.
"The key to a happier and more successful world is the growth of compassion." The Dalai Lama.
"The Dalai Lama argues convincingly that putting others before ourselves is the key to both a happier life and a better society, and offers proven Buddhist techniques for how we can cultivate the mind of compassion and equanimity." Shambhala Sun.
