According to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, we each possess the ability to
achieve happiness and a meaningful life, but the key to realizing that
goal is self-knowledge. In How to See Yourself As You Really Are,
the world's foremost Buddhist leader and recipient of the Nobel Peace
Prize shows readers how to recognize and dispel misguided notions of self
and embrace the world from a more realistic -- and loving -- perspective.
Through illuminating explanations and step-by-step exercises, His Holiness
helps readers to see the world as it actually exists, and explains how,
through the interconnection of meditative concentration and love, true
altruistic enlightenment is attained.
Enlivened by personal anecdotes and intimate accounts of the Dalai Lama's
own life experiences, How to See Yourself As You Really Are is an
inspirational and empowering guide that can be read and enjoyed by anyone
seeking spiritual fulfillment.
This latest message from The Dalai Lama reveals his trademark inclusiveness, his thoughtful approach to our diverse worries, and his keen perceptions of when conflict, disharmony, immorality, and commercialism need to be worked through. The ability to influence these issues can only be found by giving up our ignorance and our false sense of individuality.
