"Reflections from the Journey of Life" presents quotations from the Dalai Lama selected from personal conversations with editor Catherine Barry. The Fourteenth Dalai Lama is known throughout the world for his promotion of justice, truthfulness, and compassion for all cultures, races, and religions. Inside these pages you will read the Dalai Lama's thoughts about:
Happiness and Love
Negative Emotions
Responsibility and Interdependence
Mind, Body, and Spirit
Ethics and Science
Buddhist Teachings and Practices
The Dalai Lama is a symbol of peace and of the non-violent struggle against the repression of the Tibetan people. Buddhist tradition holds that the cumulated knowledge of all the Dalai Lamas is passed on to the next one. His wisdom comes not only from the knowledge bequeathed to him through lineage, but also from his life experiences and depth of empathy for humankind. The Dalai Lama shares his unparalled insight, tolerance, and understanding with a wide-ranging scope.
