    We all possess one common desire: the need for happiness and a meaningful life. According to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the ability to find true fulfillment lies within each of us. Now, the spiritual and temporal leader of Tibet, Nobel Prize winner, and best selling author helps you begin the path to enlightenment in this easy-access reference for daily practice.

    "Not the best book for those new to Buddhism"
    Overall

    Although I found this book provided me with a greater understanding of Buddhism and some valuable insights, the majority of the text was overly theoretical and complex for a beginner such as myself. It may mean more to someone more advanced in their understanding of the concepts discussed.

    This fresh and original work illuminates such key principles as karma (what we do does matter), rebirth (every moment is an opportunity to start afresh), letting go (simplifying our lives by clarifying our hearts and minds), as well as conscious living and dying, and Dzogchen, the ultimate, mystical teaching of Tibet.

    Deborah says: "Wonderful guidance!"
    "Excellent Introduction to Buddhism"
    Overall

    Lama Surya Das provides a very accessible introduction to Buddhism, entertaining us with personal anecdotes along the way. His voice is very relaxing. After finishing the book, I was ready for more detail and more practical advice on daily practice.
