Introduction by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
Born in New York, Lama Surya Das has spent over 25 years studying with the great spiritual masters and is the highest trained lama in the United States. Awakening the Buddha Within is the first comprehensive book to provide a bridge between East and West, past, present, and future—and to demystify the profound teachings of Tibetan Buddhism for Western students. Utilizing the unique Buddhist guidelines embodied in the Noble Eight Fold Path and the traditional Three Enlightenment Trainings of Virtue, Meditation, and Wisdom, Surya Das elucidates key principles such as karma, rebirth, and mind-training as well as the highest, most secret teaching of Tibet, Dzogchen.
