His Holiness the Dalai Lama is celebrated as Buddhism's pre-eminent spiritual master and teacher, embodying the highest aspirations of this rich tradition that is more than 2,500 years old. This fascinating book explores some of His Holiness' most powerful writings and talks. As he explains the elements of the Buddha's teachings and the basic practices of meditation, he also engages and reconciles the innovations of modern science with Buddhist perspectives. Ultimately, His Holiness calls for the celebration of diversity and the recognition of interdependence that breeds a sense of Universal Responsibility, which must govern all of our relationships in this increasingly fragmented world.
