“The essence of all spiritual life is your attitude to others.” —His Holiness the Dalai Lama

With clarity and candor, the Dalai Lama expounds on the core teachings of Buddhism. Fusing ancient wisdom with a modern sensibility, he gently encourages each of us to embrace lives of love and compassion; to embrace individual responsibility.

His pithy reflections encourage us to rid ourselves of preoccupation with the ephemera of daily life and to find refuge in Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha.

Inspiring, provocative, and thoughtful, this slim volume will be read and treasured for years to come.

"So here we are with the great and deep, sweet and challenging, supporting and inspiring aphorisms of this wonderful person offering us his invaluable service, providing us with tools of key pithy insights he has gained from 8 decades of his broad and often difficult experience, and his vast and persistent studies of the thoughts of others in the Buddhist spiritual university tradition and of his own thinking patterns in the meditational university of his mind. They are so well arranged by the sensitive and learned editor, I welcome you to them in the fullest confidence that you will find these gems of advice enlightening to both head and heart." --from the foreword by Robert Thurman
