Life is hard. Each of us face problems on a daily basis that often seem overwhelming and insoluble. In The Dalai Lama’s Little Book of Compassion, the Dalai Lama tells us that while suffering is a given, we can overcome it by taking the path of compassion.

In seven concise chapters, His Holiness explores the way of compassion by sharing his thoughts on contentment, joy, living well, facing death, dealing with anger, giving and receiving, and the necessity of interfaith cooperation.

In addition to these short essays on specific topics, the Dalai Lama candidly responds to questions from students from around the world. He offers profound insights into the current ecological crisis, the political problems in Tibet, the nature of suffering, and much more.

This small hardcover is a charming gift for all occasions and a devotional gem, ideal for those interested in the spiritual insight of one of today's great teachers.

Tenzin Gyatso, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, is the exiled spiritual leader of the Tibetan people. Born in 1935, he was recognized at the age of two as the reincarnation of the thirteenth Dalai Lama and was enthroned in 1940. Following the suppression of the Tibetan national uprising in 1959, he was given political asylum in India. He is widely recognized as an advocate of world peace and has received many honors, including the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989.
