Great Tibetan masters with profound realization and experience of the path have distilled their advice into powerful, seedlike instructions that get to the heart of the matter. In this wonderful anthology, Matthieu Ricard has selected and translated some of the most refreshing and clearest of spiritual advice, drawing from all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.

Best-selling author Matthieu Ricard was inspired to put together this compilation by a meeting he had with the Tibetan master Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, who told him, "When one realizes the depth of view of the various schools of Tibetan Buddhism and we see also that they all lead to the same goal without contradicting each other, we see that only ignorance can lead us to adopt a sectarian view." With that in mind, Ricard has gathered pith teachings from the masters of all times and traditions to illuminate the path: the view, meditation, and action.

"They are simply a compilation of the most inspiring texts that I have had the privilege to read over the years. I chose them for their clarity and for the authenticity of their authors." Matthieu Ricard.

"The question is not whether life has a meaning, but how each of us can give it one." The Dalai Lama.

"The best gift that a spiritual teacher can give is to show us the nature of our own mind so that we can recognize it. Generally what is called mind or consciousness seems to be a mass of thoughts related to perceptions, emotions, memories, and imagination. But behind that curtain of thoughts, can we discern the fundamental component of the mind? Can we see the pure awareness of the present moment that underlies all mental activity? What the great meditators that we quote in this anthology have to say will help us to recognize the essential nature of mind and master the thoughts and emotions that, until now, have endlessly followed, one after the other, and kept us in a state of confusion." Matthieu Ricard.
