Editorial Reviews

About the Author

The Dalai Lama is the spiritual leader of the TIbetan people. He lives in exile in Dharamsala, India. He was awarded the Nobel peace prize in 1989. He is the author of many books on Buddhism including The Four Noble Truths.

More About the Author

His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, was born in 1935 to a peasant family in northeastern Tibet and was recognized at the age of two as the reincarnation of his predecessor, the Thirteenth Dalai Lama. The world's foremost Buddhist leader, he travels extensively, speaking eloquently in favor of ecumenical understanding, kindness and compassion, respect for the environment, and, above all, world peace.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In this small{literally] book, HH Dalai lama speaks of compassion,ridding oneself of anger,forgiveness of enemies,living life in a truly more loving way. Though much of it seems familar to western ears[the ideas of love compassion and service are not unknown in western religion and philosophy],the simplicity of much of what the dalai lama says is striking. His own struggles with anger are enlightening,and the prose,gleaned from lectures I believe, is smooth and cleanly transformed into english.There are other books of the dalai lama that are far more demanding{"tranforming the mind" for example},though few are more accesible. A lovely gift,a wonderful introduction to one of the masters of the day.

I've read a few books by His Holiness the Dalai Lama so far and honestly I've struggled through all of them.
The Dalai Lama's Book Of Wisdom is the best one I`ve read to date. It's the easiest to read as well as being very simple and at the same time deep in it's content.
It's divided into 4 short wonderful sections:
Contentment, Joy and Living Well
Facing Death and Dying
Dealing With Anger and Emotion
Giving and Receiving
It's one of those books that you can keep by your night table or in your meditation area or wherever and take a look at it every so often.
The cover is so warm, inviting and peaceful that I might just have to get another copy, cut the cover out and frame it.

Format: Paperback
In this pocket-size text, His Holiness the XIV Dali Lama offers simple but profound counsel to those who wish to change their lives for the better. Buy it. Read it. Then, put it in your desk drawer at work, beside your bed, on a coffee table, or in your glove compartment where you can easily find it when you are tempted to deal harshly with other fallible human beings.

Format: Paperback
This is not so much a book as an aide to meditation and reflection.
If you are learning about Buddhism, and therefore about meditation, this book is very useful. I keep mine by my meditation table (with candle, incense, little Buddha statue and a small saying). Before meditating, I open the book randomly and reflect upon the statement made by HH Dalai Lama, as I ease inwardly.
Highly recommended for yourself, or as a gift for a friend.

Inspirational words form one of the leading spiritual figures of our time. The Dalai Lama, the exiled spiritual leader of Tibet, offers simple advice to those who want to bring more compassion into their lives. I also highly recommend "Open Your Mind, Open Your Life: A Little Book of Eastern Wisdom" by Taro Gold.

12 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Mashenka on May 31, 2005
Format: Paperback
This litle book of wisdom is a compilation of extracts from the "Power of Compassion". I give it a 3 stars because I thought it was a compilation of selected sayings from all the books and/or interviews. However, every Dalai Lama's book to me is a precious fountain of wisdom and I love all of them but I am just dissapointed with this one in terms of publication.
