The sequel to the bestselling Wisdom of Forgiveness. Through deepy engaging behind-the-scenes stories, this book offers rare insights into the Dalai Lama's life as he interacts with remarkable people from three continents and all walks of life. We see how he approaches the world with playful optimism, and a profound empathy for the suffering of others.It is an intensely personal portarit of the Dalai Lama and at his most human, and most humane.The story of his inspiring friendship with a blind Irishman, a person he calls his hero, shows how one can overcome adversity. The Dalai Lama's collaborations with leading neuroscientists, psychologists, and educators provides irrefutable evidence that an education grounded in altruism and compassion has far-reaching benefits. And in the Dalai Lama's uncommon encounters with a beggar girl, with Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and with illiterate grandmothers learning how to harness solar power in impoverished communities, he translates compassion into action and inspires others to do the same. The Dalai Lama's wisdom revolves around this practical application of compassion. Enhanced by several decades of practice and illuminated through captivating anecdotes of his own experience, this book can help readers lead more fulfilling lives.

This intimate book is split into three sections covering Overcoming Adversity, Educating the Heart, and Compassion in Action.

"Genuine compassion is based not on our own projections and expectations but rather on the rights of the other; irrespective of whether another person is a close friend or an enemy, as long as that person wishes for peace and happiness and wishes to overcome suffering, then on that basis we develop a genuine concern for his or her problems. If you want others to be happy, practise compassion. If you want to be happy, practise compassion." The Dalai Lama.
