An all new, recently-written text forming a wonderful collection of personal thoughts from the Dalai Lama on modern life and issues facing the world today.
This beautifully photographed book, rich in Tibetan culture, is partly biographical and focuses on the Dalai Lama's personal thoughts on growing up as a young leader, life in exile, visiting China and meeting Mao; the environment, war, technology, even birth control.
This is a wonderful collection of His Holiness the Dalai Lama's thoughts on various important subjects: the world today, the different world views of faith, science and religion, and the nature of life, death and rebirth.
The first section of the book is autobiographical, providing an intimate personal portrait of the Dalai Lama in his own words, discussing his studies, the invasion of Tibet, his meeting with Mao, and his views on everything from travelling in China, to his perspective on Gandhi. His commentary then extends to encompass Tibet and life in exile and the state of the world today and addresses faith, science and religion and then the individual inner journey.
