Art of Happiness:
A Handbook for Living
by H. H. the Dalai Lama XIV, Howard Cutler
"Whether one believes in religion or not, whether one believes in this religion or that religion, the very purpose of our life is happiness, the very motion of our life is towards happiness." --H.H. the Dalai Lama, from The Art of Happiness So popular and so rarely understood, this Nobel Peace Prize winner and man of great inner peace brings to a general audience the key to a happy life. In collaboration with a Western psychiatrist, The Art of Happiness is the first inspirational book for a general audience by the Dalai Lama. Through meditations, stories, and the meeting of Buddhism and psychology, the Dalai Lama shows us how to defeat day-to-day depression, anxiety, anger, jealousy, or just an ordinary bad mood. He discusses relationships, health, family, and work to show us how to ride through life's obstacles on a deep and abiding source of inner peace. Based on 2,500 years of Buddhist meditations mixed with a healthy dose of common sense, The Art of Happiness crosses the boundaries of all traditions to help readers with the difficulties common to all human beings.

The Power of Patience from a Buddhist Perspective
by Dalai Lama, Geshe Thupten Jinpa
The world could use a bit more patience & tolerance
As the President of Arizona Teachings (ATI), which hosted and sponsored these teachings on patience in 1993 in Tucson, Arizona, it may be said that I am not completely objective about the contents of the book. With that caveat in mind I still feel comfortable in saying that His Holiness' teachings on patience, tolerance and anger are brilliantly done. The depth of knowlege of and compassion towards the subject make these teachings an indespensible tool for the serious student and those who wish to move deeply into their own self-awareness and investigation of their shadows.
Lopon Claude d'Estree from Fairfax, Virginia USA, 1998
Wonderfull book- a reflection and a lesson for all.
This book touches your heart. It describes the life of the Dalai Lama, told by himself, and the result is a fantastic book that tells you about the tragedy of the Tibetan people, its amazing culture, as well as reveals the wonderful soul and generosity of one of the most important leaders of our time. A reader from San Diego, California, 1998
Based on a 14th-century text and never before translated for a general audience, The Way to Freedom is considered by Tibetans to be the essence of 1,000 years of Buddhist teachings and the heart of Tibetan practice. Presented in easy to understand steps, this is the essential primer on Tibetan Buddhism for both non-practitioners and avid students.

Land and My People:
The Original Autobiography of His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet
by Bstan-Dzin-Rgya-Mtsho, Dalai Lama XIV, Melissa Mathison Ford
"My Land and My People" tells the story of the Dalai Lama's life, as well providing a history of the shocking subjugation of the Tibetan people by the Chinese government. Rather than being an angry indictment, however, the book instead issues a gentle appeal for understanding and peace.
by Dalai Lama, Galen Rowell, XIV Dalai Lama
One of the world's spiritual leaders and a renowned wilderness photograher combine their vision of Tibet in this stunningly beautiful book. Essays by the Fourteenth Dalai Lama appear with Galen Rowell's dramatic images in a moving presentation of the splendors of Tibet's revered by threatened heritage.
Death and Eternal Soul in Buddhism
by Dalai Lama, Bstan-Dzin-Rgya-Mtsho
"Buddha Nature" is a very complex topic in Tibetan Buddhism. Not many books deal with this topic and an even smaller number present this concept in perspective to Christian ideas of self, immortality and eternal soul. Today's most famous (and articulate) spokesperson for Buddhism, the Dalai Lama presents views concerning the Self in Buddhism. In the process, he explains how Buddhist teachings differentiate the person and the eternal soul. At the same time, he explains his ideas of Nirvana. A fascinating synthesis of individuality and universality arises, one that could only be formed by His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama. The Buddha Nature is an inspiring book that encourages religious and spiritual dialogue. The Buddha Nature is an insightful and valuable contribution to Buddhist studies. Midwest Book Review

Imagine All the People:
A Conversation With the Dalai Lama on Money, Politics, and Life As It Could Be
by Dalai Lama, Fabien Quaki, Anne Benson
If you could sit down with the Dalai Lama and talk with him about anything, what would you
discuss? Fabien Ouaki, a prominent French businessman, was granted such an opportunity and
asked the Dalai Lama what he thinks about the everyday issues that fill our newspapers and
lives. This is the record of these varied and remarkable conversations.

Blessed by His Holiness' buoyant and insightful thoughts, Imagine All the People allows readers to glimpse the spontaneous workings of an extraordinary mind.
The Joy of Living and Dying in Peace
(Library of Tibet Series , Vol 3)
by Bstan-Dzin-Rgya-Mtsho, Donald S., Jr Lopez, Dalai Lama
This moving and instructive treatise on how to live a meaningful life and face death
without fear is the third volume in the Dalai Lama's lucid and inspiring Path to
Enlightenment series, and in many ways, it is the most personal as the Dalai Lama, now in
his sixties, acknowledges that age has intensified his meditation on death. Tibetan
Buddhism conceives of existence in terms of eons worth of successive lifetimes, a cosmic
perspective that enables the Dalai Lama to compare death to a change of clothes. His
Holiness explains how meditation leads to the control of negative emotions and how the
cultivation of a spiritual practice enriches not only our lives but also the lives of
others. His Holiness writes, "The more altruistic we are, the happier we will
be," and there's no simpler or surer first step on the path toward spirituality than
to read His Holiness' wise and affectionate teachings. Donna Seaman

Discovering a Universal Spirituality in the World's Religions
by Dalai Lama, Wayne Teasdale
Drawing on his extraordinary experience as an interreligious monk combining his profound Christian faith with an intimate understanding of Hinduism's ancient traditions, Brother Wayne Teasdale reveals the power of a universal spirituality and its practical elements.

A Flash of Lightning in the Dark of Night:
A Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life
(Shambhala Dragon Editions)
by Bstan- Dzin-Rgya-Mtsho, Dalai Lama
If everyone considered only the well-being of others as the bodhisattva's way of life
directs, the world would be a much better place. As it is, those who dream of such a
society need both mystical and practical advice regarding what they can do to further the
effort. They'll find it here. The Dalai Lama's teaching and reflection on the text of
Shantideva provide a gentle guide to compassion and enlightenment. Throughout his
explanations, the Dalai Lama refers to the experience of daily living. For most readers
his examples will ring true, particularly when he is talking about the very human emotions
of anger and frustration. The call to serve others and think of others first may seem
idealistic, but it is the goal of enlightenmentsomething to work toward whatever one's
path. One does not have to be a Buddhist to appreciate the beauty of the teachings and the
simplicity of the life presented here. Indeed, non-Buddhists may discover a refreshing new
approach to the doctrines of love your neighbor and do unto others. Mary Deeley
