A Handbook for Living

by H. H. the Dalai Lama XIV, Howard Cutler
Hardcover (1998)

Audio Cassette (1998)

"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.

Healing Anger : The Power of Patience from a Buddhist Perspective by Dalai Lama, Geshe Thupten Jinpa Healing Anger:
The Power of Patience from a Buddhist Perspective

by Dalai Lama, Geshe Thupten Jinpa
Paperback (1997)

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

The Buddha Nature: Death and Eternal Soul in Buddhism by Dalai Lama, Bstan-Dzin-Rgya-Mtsho The Buddha Nature:
Death and Eternal Soul in Buddhism

by Dalai Lama, Bstan-Dzin-Rgya-Mtsho
Paperback (1997)

"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

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
Hardcover (1997)

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.

This book is for anyone who wants great insight into Tibetan Buddhism.For those who were disappointed with introduction books to Buddhism, H.H. Dalai Lama gets in depth into the paths, teachings, and practices in Buddhism.It is a very detailed book and teaches Buddhism in depth and not in an overview fashion. Very insightful and I was able to learn a vast amount of knowledge from reading this book. H.H. Dalai Lama, I feel is an amazing writer and is a source of compassion and knowledge for anyone. If you would like to know more about Buddhism than just an overview and ways to cultivate the wisdom inside of you, I would say this is the book for you.

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
Paperback (1994)

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
