Overview

The Path to Tranquility: Daily Wisdom by Dalai Lama, Renuka Singh

The Dalai Lama serves as a living symbol of holiness and selfless triumph over tribulation for people of all religious traditions-as well as those with no religious affiliation at all. This collection of daily quotations drawn from His Holiness's own writings, teachings, and interviews offers words of guidance, compassion, and peace that are as down to earth as they are rich in spirit. Suffused with endearing informality, warmth, and practicality, they cover almost every aspect of human life, secular and religious--from loneliness, suffering, anger, and everyday insecurities to happiness, intimacy, and responsibility to others. With a special foreword by His Holiness on the power of meditation and personal responsibility, The Path to Tranquility is a fresh and accessible spiritual treasure to return to day after day, year after year.

Although I like the Dalai Lama, I was disappointed with this book. It doesn't leave me feeling tranquil, as the title suggests. Instead, it seems that the entries are thrown in rather randomly and without much editing. There are some that make no sense, and others are just too obvious to mention in any serious text. This book does not live up to the standards of the Dalai Lama's other books. If you want a really great book with daily snippets of Buddhist encouragement, I highly recommend 'Open Your Mind, Open Your Life: A Little Book of Eastern Wisdom' by Taro Gold.
