Publisher's Summary

The Tibet Center and the Gere Foundation present one of the world's great spiritual leaders and author of An Open Heart and the New York Times best seller The Art of Happiness.

In Training the Mind, The Dalai Lama explains the basic Buddhist system and lays out a foundation for practice. Through daily practice, we pay homage to Buddha for his great kindness as teacher, we contemplate the impermanence of life, and dedicate our positive activities to the benefit of all in order to build a better world.

©2001 The Dalai Lama; (P)2008 Simon & Schuster

What made the experience of listening to The Dalai Lama in America the most enjoyable?

He has a great personality!

What other book might you compare The Dalai Lama in America to and why?

If you are looking to be a better person and change for yourself, try the Secret things of God by Dr. Henry Cloud. I am also listening to Live a better life by the Dalai Lama and so far it is great. I have listened to this particular one twice now and I catch something different every time.

What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

I enjoyed the opening buda prayer in buda. It sounded peaceful, humble and like it came from the soul. I know almost nothing about budaism... but it is definitely something I want to learn more about.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh and SMILE!
