Publisher's Summary

In How to See Yourself as You Really Are, the world's foremost Buddhist leader teaches listeners how to recognize and dispel misguided notions of self and embrace the world from a more realistic and loving perspective.

Step-by-step exercises help listeners shatter their false assumptions and ideas and see the world as it actually exists. His Holiness sets the stage for discovering the reality behind appearances. But getting past one's misconceptions is only a prelude to right action, and the final section describes how to harness the power of meditative concentration to the service of love, and vice versa, so that 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 to achieving self-awareness that can be enjoyed by spiritual seekers of all faiths.

    "Great disappointment"
    What disappointed you about How to See Yourself as You Really Are?

    This is no good unless you really want to learn how to meditate. That was not my purpose.


    What could His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Jeffrey Hopkins have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I think, I got the message after less than ½ hour, but it just kept going on and on.


    Any additional comments?

    It was one of the extremely rare books that I quit long before the end. I often read even very boring books till the end but this one I just could not stand.

    "Great book with horrible narrator!"
    If you could sum up How to See Yourself as You Really Are in three words, what would they be?

    Three words:
    Fire this narrator!
    Mr. Hopkins-perhaps You are good writer, but keep yourself behind the desk and DO NOT record ANY books. Your voice and style of narration are not made for public listening. YOU made this book boring to death and should apology to Dalai Lama.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Didn't get there yet. I have to get hardcopy to go through.


    What didn’t you like about Jeffrey Hopkins’s performance?

    EVERYTHING!


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Teachings about compassion... Very mind changing.
