Description:

For decades, the Dalai Lama has travelled the world, meeting with people from a wealth of countries who differ greatly in their background, social status and viewpoint, bringing them his own individual wisdom and compassion. In his encounters with everyone from the inhabitants of shantytowns in São Paulo and Soweto to heads of state in Davos and Washington D.C., the Dalai Lama saw similar problems: a set of values that have helped the very rich to advance beyond the multitudinous poor, a disregard for the environment that could lead to global catastrophe and governments in paralysis, bereft of positive, progressive policies of any sort.

    “Amazing Read”

    This is a very important book. The Dalai Lama explains the importance of empathy and education reform for future generations. His positive and genuine belief in the world’s opportunity for progress in the next thirty or so years is inspiring. Applying his teachings practically, to elements of society such as politics and economic systems, the Dalai Lama goes beyond conscious sentiment to truly encourage ACTION. Psychology studies consistently serve as evidence for many of the claims made, intertwining spirituality and science beautifully. A truly amazing read, possible only as one result of a life led with deep compassion.
