The Dalai Lama, a living symbol of holiness and selfless triumph over tribulation, has shared his philosophy of peace with today's turbulent world. Yet rarely do we hear him speak with such directness as in this collection of quotations drawn from his own writings, teachings, and interviews.
The Path to Tranquilty, a fresh and accessible introduction to his inspirational wisdom, offers words of quidance, compassion, and peace that are as down to earth as they are rich in spirit. It covers almost every aspect of human life, secular and religius - happiness, intimacy, loneliness, suffering, anger, and everyday insecurities - with endearing informality, warmth, and practicality.

No B.S. reviews. I'll never soft-pedal bad writing or inept narration.
I don't understand why "Path to Tranquility" has to be read in a tone fit to put a two-year-old to sleep. The reading is ridiculously syrupy, actually demeaning. Try instead "Stages of Meditation," read by Ken McLeod.
This is just an endless series of disconnected aphorisms and observations, and so, I didn't enjoy it at all. The title suggests they are perhaps some kind of guided, daily meditations. Not at all. Just the string of aphorisms.
