HOW TO BE COMPASSIONATE His Holiness the Dalai Lama
When we think of the Dalai Lama, we immediately think of the compassion he embodies, to which he has devoted his entire life. In How to Be Compassionate, Jeffrey Hopkins presents essential teachings of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in which we are called upon to pay attention to our own hearts - to our orientation to everyone and everything around us. His Holiness points out mistakes of attitude, how we make them and how we can correct them for a better future. He explains how caring for others can be a profound source of happiness on an individual level, which can then be extended outward in wider and wider circles. Then he describes basic mistakes that lead to personal turmoil and interpersonal disruption, along with solutions for these problems. He asks us to examine the nature of consciousness and gives heartfelt advice on how to live with greater and greater care and concern for all beings.
