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

In Cultivating Compassion, The Dalai Lama explores the three levels of understanding. Understanding derived through listening or study, understanding derived through reception and thinking, and understanding derived through meditation and practice. Through meditation, we can generate genuine compassion and by clearing away attachment and aversion, we can better practice compassion in our daily life.
