HOW TO SEE YOURSELF AS YOU REALLY ARE His Holiness the Dalai Lama
The Dalai Lama gives us a clear and beautiful vision of how self-knowledge leads to inner growth and flourishing relationships. He shows how insight and love can work together to bring about enlightenment, like the two wings of a bird. Through step-by-step exercises, he encourages us to expose and face the misconceptions we have about ourselves. Once we have recognized these, we can begin to address them. Drawing on his own experiences, the Dalai Lama explains how to break down the illusions we have superimposed on reality, and how thought itself shapes what we perceive. By learning to harness the power of meditation, we can discover our true selves. This in turn, will enable us to put our insight into the service of love, and love into the service of insight, taking us one step closer to global harmony and fulfilment.
