Synopsis

Synopsis

This beloved classic brings together in one volume all the major themes of the Dalai Lama’s teachings. Drawn from the lectures he gave during his first three visits to North America, the book covers the core subject matter of Tibetan Buddhism, as presented for the first time to an English-speaking audience. The chapters are arranged developmentally from simple to complex topics, which include the luminous nature of the mind, the four noble truths, karma, the common goals of the world’s religions, meditation, deities, and selflessness. Central to all these teachings is the necessity of compassion—which the Dalai Lama says is “the essence of religion” and “the most precious thing there is.”  
Praise

Praise

“Though he is one of the most erudite scholars of one of the most cerebral of all the world’s philosophies, he has a gift for reducing his doctrine to a core of lucid practicality crystallized in the title of this book, Kindness, Clarity, and Insight. ‘My true religion,’ he has said, ‘is kindness.’”—Time 



“Gives the most comprehensive picture of contemporary Tibetan Buddhism.”—San Francisco Chronicle
