Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A wonderful collection of evocative and penetrating insights from perhaps the greatest spiritual master of our times. The quotations first impact us with their reasoning and logic and then in mysterious zen-like fashion touch and move us..."
— Rajiv Mehrotra,
Trustee & Secretary, Foundation For Universal Responsibility of His Holiness the Dalai Lama

"The question and answer format of this beautifully complied, small volume draws us right into a dialogue with the Dalai Lama on how to live meaningfully and grow spiritually from the most mundane experiences of everyday life. In an early response, the Dalai Lama states, "My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness." His responses to the most basic questions on the art of living astound me with their depth and clarity, but most of all their wonderful accessibility. The Dalai Lama often describes himself as a simple monk. Here the editors have distilled some of his best wisdom on how to become, quite simply, fully human. The book would make a perfect gift for the experienced seeker and non-seeker alike."
Olivia Stokes Dreier, Executive Director, Karuna Center for Peacebuilding
